Istat menus updated to 1.3

June 15, 2008 Leave a comment

The rather excellent iStat menus by iSlayer was recently updated to version 1.3, and it’s well worth a try if you haven’t already got it running. It’s a menubar information display that shows a range of details including CPU, memory, drives, network, temperatures, bluetooth and date/time.

The screenshot above (from the iSlayer product page) gives you a good idea of what to expect. There’s some nice improvements in the new version, and the top five processes for CPU and memory utilisation are now displaying correctly on my Macbook and hackintosh. The only issue I have is that the temperature and fans/power displays don’t work on my hackintosh, but that’s to be expected since its not official Apple hardware.

Not only is this an excellent and useful piece of software, it’s also freeware, so there’s no excuse to to try it.
