Our department is using Current Contents on disk, available for the Mac. I
think if you pay extra you can get the abstracts (we don't). In my
experience there are only a couple of drawbacks to CC. Each issue (weekly I
think) takes up ~2Mb of disk space, and I don't think you can set it up to
search multiple issues in a batch mode. Other than that, it's fast, you can
put together very specific Boolean searches, and the search results can
easily be imported into EndNote.
