Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I am buying my daughter a new laptop for college. With Windows Vista, should I stick with 32 bit or go with 64 bit? Will the 64 run my current software?
I beta tested Vista 64 bit, and had very little problems running 'most' software I had.
Without knowing the specific software you will be trying to use, it's hard to tell. Most software manufacturers DO offer their stuff in 64 bit, but it's often NOT included on the installation disks.
For the average user, I would stick with 32 bit, only because some programs won't work under 64 bit, unless it states 64 Bit compatibility right on the software box.
