    I'm currently running the 32 bit Windows 7 beta on my laptop. It's running really well so far, and I'm wondering if it will run even better on the 64 bit version. My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5735, Intel Pentium Dual-Core 2ghz processor, 2GB DDR2 RAM, with an Intel Media Accelerator 4500M graphics card. Would the 64 bit Windows run better or worse? All input is appreciated.

    Run 64 bit is better for speed, but you have to deal with compatibility issues with programs made for 32 bit once in a blue moon.

    If your good at computers and you want a little challenge every once in a while then get 64 bit. All of the computers are going to change to that eventually anyway. I went for 64 bit for the beta.

    Yeah I was thinking that. Do you think it'd run well on my laptop, by looking at its specs though? The video card is just horrible, but I don't know how much that affects performance of a 64 bit operating system.
