Re: Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit

The major differences are:

1. If you can find Win 32-bit, they are harder to find.

2. Win 7 32-bit only supports 4GB of Ram or less. Win 7 64-bit supports way more, most machines can support either 8 or 16GB, but the theoretical limit is way beyond that.

3. Some of your hardware like printers and scanners may not work on Windows 7. You need to check by going to the printer/scanner manufacturer site, look under support or downloads and search for Win 7 64-bit drivers for your specific model.
Take my advice, I don't use it anyway.

Hi,
I have Jaws 12, but have reverted to Jaws 11 as 12 was crashing too often.

I'm afraid I need to think seriously about a new computer.

I'm still with XP Home.

Can someone tell me what would be the major difference between Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit?

Thanks.
Crystal
