    i had adobe flash player 10.xx beta 3 on my old hard drive and it was working good. 15-20% of each core while playing videos.

    now i cant seem to find the beta 3. which flash player is the best and is the least cpu hog.

    I don't know if there is a "best" because there isn't a concrete option. Some say that with new flash, CPU usage decreased for them. For me, I didn't not experience that, CPU usage was still the same.

    yeah the 10.1 seems to have the same cpu usage as the beta 3 i was using. why cant adobe do something with flash for macs? even though videos only take about 15-25% of each core, i feel it should only take u about 10% of each core, right?

    Anything with "flash" and "adobe" in the same sentence is a resource hog. There are so much better formats out there that play nice.
