In addition to the above question when I get a new computer with Windows 7, since I reside on an Island which is part of Spain, the only sources open to purchase will of course deliver the machine in Spanish. I want the machine changed to English operating. Now it seems to me that I could pay more and have Ultimate installed (although the vendors I have approached don,t seem to carry this version very readily) or, I have read somewhere on my visits here that something can be changed (in the Bios) which tells the computer to perform in English, or am I wrong? Any suggestions because I,ve tried to get the vendors not to install 7 and I would provide a newly purchased English version on the internet! They ain,t too happy to discuss this!
My next question in the ongoing search to purchase a new computer here on Tenerife (a very limited choice available here) relates to a printer. My 10 yr.old machine currently carries Xp Pro,(SP3) 32 bit and I need to purchase a multi-purpose Fax/copier/scanner/printer both for doing small jobs but to enable me keep in contact with my 90 yr old Father, in Scotland. If I buy one now, possibly wi-fi but cheap (Canon Pixma MX 320/340 seem to fit the bill but running costs severe)will the same machine hook up with any new computer I purchase soon? I think my confusion is will such a machine convert from 32 to 64 bit without any problem?
