I plan on buying a new Intel iMac in the next week or so, and have a few questions.

1) Will the folding app run on the Intel chip fine? I figure it should, considering it's written for Mac OSX and not for individual processors, but just making sure.

2) More importantly. Since the iMac has a dual-core processor, will it run as if it's got two processors, or as one?

Anything else I should keep in mind? Will the iMac stay cool? My old Cube used to heat up like mad, but I figure that the Core Duo's have better heat management...

Thanks!

I was in the Apple Store and used an Intel iMac for a while. It wasn't any warmer than any other iMac G5 I've used. It might have been cooler, and it had been on all day and used by numerous people I'm sure.
