    For the most part, with RR CPU usage, it is a matter of getting all the drivers, flash and everything working correctly on the PC. Once this is done, CPU usage is next to nothing.

    I have Road Runner running on THIS BOARD with a 1.8ghz Celleron on it. It is a computer I am building for someone, and is 99% done. Looking over at the screen as I type this message, It is showing between 1% - 6% CPU usage at idle. (Most of the time under 2%, with small spikes every 5 seconds of so do to scripts and back end stuff firing in my skin) My skin has a lot of extra's, some flash, scripts monitoring the CD/DVD to see if a disk has been inserted, checking your GPS location to update labels and weather location, It's the RM Music database (Another external application), and then all the extension plugins that are currently running, Movie Show Times, Screen Lock, Motion Lock and a host of other things. It is a bit more extreme than most skins, and even with all this extra overhead on top of Road Runner, CPU usage is still very minimal.

    Now the fun part This is with a large 3meg 3D rotating car image in the center of the main menu screen on the skin. iGuidance is also running in the background. Turning on the visualization on the main menu, as well as the 3D logo at the same time, the CPU jumps between 7% - 14%.

    Here is a Screen Capture from that PC with the CPU Usage highlighted:

    That sounds great John. T-shirts and a keyboard. If it's anything like the Sarasota meet we practically had a computer flea market going. So there's a good chance everyone can leave with something.

    As far as CPU, I'm running a Sempron which is similar to the Celeron and I also have between 3-5% when running GPS, Music, and vis.

    BTW I have an AMD board and CPU I will be giving to whoever is interested. It is a MATX
    which is 9.5" x 9.5"
