    Another vote for MenuMeters. It is wonderful, and it will show you a lot more than just the CPU if you are interested. For example, you can display your internet traffic, your RAM usage... LOTS of stuff. All of it is updated in real time. I wouldn't run a Mac without it any more.

    I previously used MenuMeters, but I have since moved over to iStat Menus, which I find to have a lot more features.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
