Guide Review - margu-NotebookInfo2 Gadget

The margu-NotebookInfo2 Windows gadget has a funny name but I think it groups many different system monitors in an attractive way. You could probably replace many of your existing system monitoring gadgets with margu-NotebookInfo2.

I think the best thing about margu-NotebookInfo2 is the large number of monitoring options. You really could leave all system monitoring up to this one gadget and I'm not sure you'd be missing much. I also liked the choice of font and clean design of the gadget.

My biggest issue with margu-NotebookInfo2 was that I had a problem getting it to work in Windows 7 (as of v2.1.3 of the gadget). I finally did after accepting some script errors, but that's something that should definitely be cleaned up by the developer.

You can download the margu-NotebookInfo2 gadget for free from Softpedia. See How to Install a Windows Gadget if you need help.

Margu-NotebookInfo2 is a very good multifunction Windows 7 or Windows Vista gadget. If you're after an all-in-one Windows gadget, give this one a try.
