HA HA : this proves my point.

The only reason to buy a 64 right now is for bragging rights

Bragging rights now, but support for newer programs, coupled with faster execution of both 32 and 64 bit programs. Listen i agree with you, maybe buying a 64 bit was a lil pre-mature, BUT this is a laptop, i want the higher end, it has to last me through college in which i am going for computer network engineering. if it was a desktop, no i would not spend the money on it, i would buy a high end 32, and then further down the road upgrade the MB, memory, and processor to a 64, but you obviously can't do that with a laptop, so for now i just have to suck it in...

OK for all you noobs out there this is the explantion for the 64 bit processor, even though there are only a hand ful of 64 bit applications, the 64 bit processor RUNS 32 BIT APPS TWICE AS FAST or more. NO this processor is not for mere bragging rights it is for LEETNESS and if u question the truthfullness check out amd's website and see the comparison chart between the 64 bit and the intel p4 ee, the numbers dont lie
