I just got my first MacBook Pro today, and I need a system resource monitor that sits in the toolbar at the top of the screen (what is that toolbar called?). Any suggestions? Thanks!

Everything in Macs are 100% so no need for a resource monitor. :P

There's a free one that I use called MenuMeters, but the more common one is called iStat Menus. I obviously prefer MenuMeters, because of the freeness of it, and I've customized it to look really nice. I'd recommend trying out MenuMeters just to see how you'd like it, and then if you aren't completely happy with it, I believe iStat has a demo version available.

I can tell you right off of the bat that you'll probably like iStat better, but you might consider your $16 more highly when there are free alternatives.
