64 bit supports more memory (theoretically up to 2 terabits or something like that), whereas 32 bit supports up to 3GBs. But, there are a lot of programs that don't work with 64 bit. Also, I'm pretty sure you can get the Dell customized with 64 bit. I personally would get the Dell (I like Dells), but I would get it with the 32 bit software, so I could use all my programs. Unless your going to do a lot of HD video editing, or advanced gaming, 3GBs of memory should be enough.
Hi I am looking at these two systems and each in its own merits is good. But I dont know why the dell xps one red 24 has windows vista 32 bit. How will this affect my computer in the future when i believe every one is running 64? can you please tell me what the difference is and which would you recommend? Will I be on the down side by purchasing a 32 bit system?
thank you for your assistance
