a 64 bit machine

Specs: Windows Vista, 2.1 gHZ 2 GB Mem
I have a HP Pavillion tablet laptop with a AMD Turion 64 x2 processor running Vista. I want to upgrade to a Windows 7 Ultimate OS but I'm wondering if it is 64 bit capable. I think it is but I dont want to buy the 64 bit OS if it want work. Maybe I should go with the 32 bit OS. 64 bit should give me faster performance, Right?

Also I'm wondering if Windows 7 Ultimate will provide me with the touch screen capability that I had in Vista.

Thanks for any help.

Yes it's 64 bit capable, you may as well load the 64 bit, particularly if you want to use 4GB or more of ram.

NO! 64 has nothing to do with speed.

It will require that you have available all new drivers and maybe programs.

On a tablet you should stay with 32 bit. I doubt you have the spare hard drive space and the motherboard to use more than 4 G even it you could put it in. There is no use for 64 bit on a computer with less than 4 G of ram.

Why on earth do you want the ultimate anyway either? A lot of money for very few upgrades.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Sure, can't hurt.

I still wonder the benefit from moving to 64 bit.
