thanks for that link mlr,

Guess I'm going to be making quiet afue bat files for certain programs :P.

I also got updated with a tidbit of information, when you run a game or such it will utilise as much of the core as needed pushing other mulitcore apps to use the second core.

but for programs that usually bog down the system when I want to use it those programs look great.

Core Duo 2.16Ghz w/ 2048MB of RAM, and Google Earth was still running smooth, same with Windows inside Parallels. I was barely eating into swap space, but yeah this is pretty much the limit. I can't imagine a quad-core. The sky is the limit.
