Sorry to butt in, but I noticed that you have an Lenovo laptop. I am
getting one, but I don't know what I need in order to run M8 on it. I will
be using going version of windows on it.

I had to get another desktop 3 years ago, an Lenovo just to run version 7.
My IBM desktop could not handle M7.

Interesting. I decided to play with this too (on a Lenovo notebook with two
cores, running a 32-bit linux). If I choose to have Mathematica fire up
another kernel "as needed", things run fine. However, if I ask it to start
two kernels "on startup", the Benchmark runs for a long time (I haven't let
it complete yet) and pegs both cores at around 100%. It also prints no
output. Perhaps a bug?
