So I've been running the 32bit Win 7 on my shiny new-ish Samsung Nc20
for a few months now and on this launch-eve I find myself at a loss as to whether or not I should install the 64bit version come tomorrow.
Other threads/forums have been no help at all
Any insight or advice would be appreciated. Questions you might be able to answer include:
Will I still be able to run x32 software?
Are the necessary drivers available?
Is it even worth the hassle if I only have 2GB of Ram?
(Bonus points for Pro/Con Lists!)
Yes, you can run 32-bit software
Yes the drivers should be available
No it's not worth it if you only have 2GB of RAM, or a CPU that slow
See how many books I've read so far in 2010
Thanks everyone for the advice so far.. any primary sources or first-person experiences would be greatly appreciated.
The biggest hurdle was reinstalling everything, which took me a day with some careful planning. I haven't noticed any speed increases, though I'm probably not sensitive enough to tell even if there were any.
I've had no problems with drivers yet, despite using an odd assortment of devices. I venture that you should exercise caution if you have some archaic printer lying around that you really love, though.
