Hi, just so I'm not fooling anyone, "I Know Next To Nothing, Feel Free to Educate Me!!" With that said, here we go. I recently purchased a Gateway M-6846 lap top and had the option of a 32 or 64 bit platform. 64 sounded better(bigger number you understand) and the saleperson said 64 bit is the wave of the future and so thats where I sit at the present. I use my lap top for emails, word processing(Word 2007), to play poker, and to send and receive pictures of my grandbabies. How does that sit with 64 bit? Do I need it or should I switch to 32 bit? Is Media player 11 compatible with 64 bit? So far I'm not sure that I really see the advantages that the salesperson spoke of. In my ignorance, am i just missing it?
I have more questions, but I'd better start here. THANKS Jim
