I think that could maybe (and i mean maybe) apply to PC technology, but as far as Notebooks, i plan on keeping this for several years and doing all my initial testing on 64bit beta's on this machine. Time will tell how the new software will perform, obviously in theory it must be better, otherwise they wouldn't be designing it now would they
and for those who've been arguing, intel basically is the market, i doubt anyones going to want to switch to 64-bit os before intel is widely distrubting 64-bit processors, because software designers dont like to design software for the odd 7% or so of pc owners that have 64-bit ready computers.
