System monitoring tools come in various sizes and colours: built-in your system ones, third-party tools, clumsy, fully-functional and oversized ones, tiny and having but one or two useful features ones etc. It seems like there's no ideal and there probably isn't. Yet we're lucky to have WinMonitor, which seems to be very close to the desired system monitoring tool.
WinMonitor is an example of a new approach to such kind of tools. While having all the necessary requisites to call itself a system monitoring utility, as, for example, HPC Time, Free Disk Space, Physical/Virtual Memory Usage, System Power Status, Network Activity and CPU Load Level, the tool incorporates features as Quick Pad, which you find extremely useful after a time.
The interface is designed in Macintosh style. You can add new cells in addition to the default ones and use them for convenient access to most used applications. Try this tool today and see it for yourself.
