    I have a powerbook 12" and youtube really taxes the machine. Processor goes up to 100% just playing a youtube video. What % does a mbp use up for a youtube video on average? Thanks.

    i played the 'worms playing music II' video on youtube ans checked my processor usage with istatpro widget and it was between 9 to 15% on MBPro 2.16 with 1gb ram.

    I have a MacBook (not Pro) but it should be about the same. I get about 25-35% CPU usage with Firefox... My fan speed skyrockets though.

    that, my friend, is an understatement. flash apps often run up almost all of one core of my mbp's processor and that just ain't right.
