hey i have this problem on my machine now ....everything seems to work fine ,,,,,but when i switch on itunes it uses 45 - 55 % of my cpu ....and all the applications slow down . And if i change a song it goes up to 90% cpu used alone by itunes.

Is this normal with my hardware comfiguration or is it some software related problem??
can others test and post how much cpu memory itunes is using in their system.
i have a mac mini too and it uses only 5% on it .

Motherboard: HIS MotherBoard I845GL Intel chipset
System Version: Mac OS X 10.4.1 (8B1025 , Ethernet, Audio working)
CPU: Pentium 4 (1.8GHz, 400MHz FSB)
RAM: 768MB SDram
Display: 1280*1024 but no QE

You need a newer version of iTunes, one which is a Universal Binary. However, I believe you need to be running OS X 10.4.3 (build 8f1099 or 8f1111) to run it. The iTunes included with 10.4.1 is PowerPC only so you have to use it under Rosetta. So I suggest you upgrade to 10.4.3 (which is worth it for other reasons too), and then install the newest version of iTunes from Apple's website - that's a universal binary.
