Hi

I have a laptop with the above processor. Its only a single core, but I wonder whether it can take the 64bit variant of windows. I cant find this out anywhere.

thanks, James

"so i wonder why it comes preinstalled with windows 7 32bit" - that is down to to the Manufacturer of the product as to which "flavour" of Windows 7 is installed.

My understanding of it is this - To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc as it needs a CLEAN install.

If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error.
