    system monitor?


    I went into my system monitor so I could see my memory and cpu usage and I noticed it said cpu1 and cpu 2, what does this mean? I did this on the computer listed in my signature. Thanks.

    Not a physical core, but a emulated one like Pentium D have.
    Take a look Intel Atom N270
    You might have a option in bios, as "SW Single Processor mode" which is disabled by default.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Not really. It does support Intel Hyperthreading, which makes it look like a second core. What it is is a second register set so threading applications have better context-switch performance. However, there is still only one processor.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
