When you get right down to it, no matter how fancy your computer is, with the latest displays and accessories and cutting edge software, it's basically a number-crunching machine. Whether its dealing with digits, text, colors, shapes, or what have you, under the cover it's all numbers. For most of the things you do, it doesn't really make any difference what's going on there, because you're insulated from it all—after all, you're not programming in binary like they did back in the beginning. From time to time, though, sometimes you really need to manipulate numbers, and that's where a calculator application comes in handy.

While the calculator that comes out of the box on most systems might be suitable for balancing your checkbook, when it comes to heavy duty number manipulation, nothing beats a full-featured scientific calculator like Magic Number Machine. Along with normal run of the mill arithmetic functionality, this app also supports all the commonly used trig and logical functions, different bases (decimal, octal, hexadecimal), as well as statistical functions, while maintaining up to 25 digits of precision. Your little desktop calculator will be green with envy.

Magic Number Machine is a Mac application. It runs under OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and later.
