I have a delima, I really like those Harmon Kardon Speaker that
the iMacs use. Does anybody know if they can be used with PC's.
If so how.

wouldn't they just have the standard mini stereo plug?
like the ones that go in the front of cd rom drives

That's what i'd be thinking... Have you actually tried to see if the speakers work, or what kind of plug they have?

Whoa, whats the cpu usage like when you run these?

Generally, usb speakers are pretty crappy when it comes to performance/cpu usage.

yeah they are and the sound is weak most of the time, those are sweet speakers though
