    My iMac (first gen Intel 17") was acting slow, so I checked Activity Monitor.

    This is what I saw.

    I also came across iTunes using -37% CPU but couldn't get the screen shot fast enough.

    (And yes, I need more RAM but I'm maxed out with this Mac)

    833.33% CPU usage? That's more than 8 cores... That's only possible with 9 cores or more. That said, surely you've found a glitch where Mac OS X thinks you have more CPU power than you actually have, or your Intel iMac contains some weird pre-release Intel chip.

    Click the Apple in the top left corner and click about this Mac. Then hit more info or whatever. Then you can find out how many cores you really have.

    Oh, whew...

    I this was going to be yet another time when something has had a complete overhaul/upgrade done to it within days of me purchasing the original spec!

    :p

    Awesome. Where do I buy that one? Also what is iTunes doing using all those cores? You must be listening to some sweet music while watching an awesome visualizer.
