Hello Everyone
A friend is looking for a new laptop, and we were wondering about getting a 64bit machine, so as to be ready for the new windows release.

does anyone know of any 64bit laptops that are currently available?

Well amd is the best for desktops and intel is best for laptops.

Hi People
Thanks for the responses. The friend is a "she", and some of the laptops I have found with 64 bit are over 3kg in weight. Do you know of any lighter laptops?

Pentium-M CPU is thermally efficient, need less cooling and hence light

if you (or she) need light 64 bit laptop, you may need to wait for Intel and AMD's latest laptop CPUs, but prepare to pay top dollar for it

If you need for mobile use, you need a Centrino, not a 64bit they are as a replacement for desktops. So they consume less space, but are heavy
