it is a great little widget to check out how you system is doing – BUT you have to open widgets to see that. until now! iSlayer has released an iStat Menu version.
this version (1.0) installs a small system preference where you can turn on and off different items in the menu bar. since installing it i have activated my network, hard disk, memory (ram), and cpu. this way i can see some of the things i am very interested in right in the menu bar all the time!
if you like to have an idea of what your system is doing (or not), download, install and tweak iStat Menu. well worth it…
