Down underneath it all, your computer is a big number cruncher. All your data is really just 1's and 0's, and everything else follows from there. So if your machine's so number-oriented, it ought to make a heck of a calculator, right?

While most modern operating systems come with a calculator app, they aren't necessarily the most powerful ones available. If you need more number-manipulating power, you're probably interested in a bigger, better calculator application—maybe something like the Magic Number Machine.

More than just a glorified adding machine, this guy can do some serious calculating. It's got a bunch of built-in functions (statistics, etc.), as well as the ability to work in decimal, hex, octal, binary, and more. There's a bunch of scientific constants already in there as well, helping to speed you on your way.

Magic Number Machine is a Mac application. It runs under OS X and requires at least version 10.4. They've also got a down-rev version available for folks still running 10.2.8 through 10.3.9.

    Web-based calculators are less hassle than lugging around a big electronic calculator.
