    Just got the MP octo yesterday. I took this Menu Meters screen shot. It made me so happy.

    Haha. I love how almost every thread is completely idle. You should try using the mac pro to actually compute something! :cool:

    I'll tell you what my favorite thing like that with my new early 2008 MP was: seeing 10 GB show up in the system profile. OMG! I love it. 8 cores is great, too, but I love having enough memory for once.

    Congrats on the new machine, hope it serves you well! Also, this may be a dumb question, but how do you get that in the menu bar? I would like to follow my computer status:eek:
    SG :apple:

    That would be iStatMenu.

    Sweet... 17?

    Am I the only one who counted the bars? I count 17...

    You might want to move your bars around or make them a bit more descriptive so you can tell which ones are CPU and which ones are other things (Maybe you have the memory bar up there next to the CPU bars?)

    No. It's "Menu Meters" just like he said.

    I run it too! Awesome utility!

    Mine looks like this tho (it's configurable):

    Plus a bunch or other meters and graphs I clipped out of the screen shot. :p

    I can write an app that will show 16 for you if you'd like. But first I want to know if you will pay me $2000 for it like Apple is asking for variably the same thing? :D
