    Hey folks, got a 2.6 i5 MBP here and at times it gets a bit too hot, especially during Skype of all things? Not a major problem.

    I have downloaded and intalled iStat which looks a cool piece of software - accessed via the 'DashBoard' but what I would prefer is to have the temperature, cpu usage, fan speed etc constantly displayed, somewhere on my screen regardless of what I am doing - is this possible?

    Thanks

    James

    The same company also makes iStat Menus. Might be what you are looking for.

    agree on istat menus, just monitor what you need though...it can be taxing if you have every monitor running all the time in short increments
