PersonalBrain 6 Pro Review & Rating The PersonalBrain 6 Pro uses 21st century technology to modernize mind maps, an organizational concept that's been around forever.

In the 70s, concept maps structured around keywords enriched education. Today, mind mapping has moved from the chalkboard to the computer screen, with a host of different software packages designed to help anyone from educators to engineers, project managers to market researchers, to map out complex concepts. Of the available options, PersonalBrain 6 Pro ($299, including an annual subscription to WebBrain Premium) provides the most sophisticated package for visualizing virtually everything on your Mac or PC.
