I just got a Dell Latitude E6500 32bit, 4 meg, 250 Gig, 2.54 , 256 video. L4 is my main program, sometimes it take a little while to load and might say "not responding". Would i see any great difference running 64bit vs 32bit?

The 64 bit will allow you to use approximately .5 GB more of that 4 GB of Ram. Some people have claimed an inherent speed advantage to the 64 bit OS, but I haven't run the tests myself so I don't know (I was voted most likely to be the Apostle Thomas). I personally run it because it is where everything is going, but you might find problem getting drivers for older printers and such. Bottom line is you will probably see a marginal speed improvement.

Ok Apostle Smile, "at least he spoke up" Big Smile. i checked for drivers that would affect me and i'm ok. But i guess any improvement is still good. Don't want to go through all the hassle of upgrading only to see nothing.
