Lol Tews.

According to Microsoft, it can be done...

Currently running Windows Vista
  • Customers with Windows Vista can purchase Windows 7 Upgrade versions. You can do a clean install (back up your files, clean install, and then reinstall your applications) or an in-place upgrade (Windows 7 installs over Windows Vista).

So are you saying that has to be done with the Full version of windows 7 64-bit or can it be done with the Upgrade version of windows 7 64-bit?

I don't care about doing a clean install, I just need to know If I can do that with the Upgrade version or if it has to be the Full version.

I'd recommend clean. And in-place is only available for 32 to 32 and 64 and 64.
Edit:
Upgrade version should work. Not sure if you can do clean installs with upgrades CD's though. If you can't, since the chart says that 32 to 64 upgrades must be done clean, then the answer is you'll have to buy the full Windows.

Shax, we are here trying to help. it is appreciated to show respect to suggestions, even if they are not what you wanted to hear
You cannot upgrade from 32 bits to 64 bits: 32-bit and 64-bit Windows: frequently asked questions#
And by the way, you will void your warranty

@shaX 07 - I think I got the problem here. You want to upgrade to 64 but you don't wanna make your wallet lighter. Is 64-bit computing that vital to you? The 64-bit applications use the full power of your processor and are usually used for really advanced computing. I know most people are used to 64 bit as everyday stuff, but you just can't have every new gizmo sometimes... If you really have made the decision that 64-bit is a must, then you will have no other choice, but to buy the full Windows 7 64-bit original or to use a hacked version (suggested you use torrents).

I'm not really in need of 64 bit windows right now, but i'm looking towards the future. I don't want to have to buy a new laptop every year. I want to be able to upgrade the RAM to 8 GB at some point in the near future, and I won't be able to do this on 32-bit windows.

Interesting point of view... Let's talk about it:
First, do you REALLY need a laptop EVERY YEAR? How often do you travel and do you need a PC everywhere you go? Second, if it's not too annoying, what kind of work do you do on your PC? Video editing, photo editing, maybe something that involves a lot of files? Share! Don't be shy. Last - laptops are ALWAYS more expensive than desktops. If you don't always need a portable PC to be everywhere with you, why not consider a desktop? If you buy a very expensive motherboard you should be able to upgrade all components you don't like really easily. And last, even though laptops are more expensive they're actually not more powerful. In fact, it's the opposite! If you're, say, a gamer, the only thing you'd work with is a 2500$ laptop. And you're STILL going to have to replace it every two years or so if you intend being with the latest trends... I got offtopic again. Maybe we should switch to PM...

I already have a very good Desktop PC, HP Media Center with Quad Intel 2.4ghz processors, 4GB RAM, 750 GB HD, DVD/CD-RW, etc..

I need the laptop for college and it's also handy with my job (i'm a network administrator).. I'm not doing high end gaming with the laptop, mostly web browsing, word, excel and to watch the ocassional DVD movie when i'm away and have nothing to do.

I know many will just say that what I bought will be sufficient for a year or 2 but that's always the assumption until 2 years go by- then what you bought is obsolete.

At least if I had the 64-bit OS already, I could always add the 4GB and RAM and prolong it's life cycle by maybe a year or 2.
