Hello.
32 bit is limited in the programs it can support while 64 is not.


More bits means that data can be processed in larger chunks which also means
more accurately.
More bits means our system can point to or address a larger number of
locations in physical memor
32-bit systems were once desired because they could address (point to) 4
Gigabytes (GB) of memory in one go. Some modern applications require more
than 4 GB of memory to complete their tasks so 64-bit systems are now
becoming more attractive because they can potentially address up to 4
billion times that many locations.
Too many people spend money they haven't earned to buy things they don't
want to impress people they don't like

Okay, I've seen all this stuff about 32 bit and 64 bit for a while and the
question finally needs to be asked... What's the dif between the two...
apart from 32 bits?
