x86 or 64Bit for me?

I got a HP CQ50-139WM laptop. You can see my specs at bottom. I have been testing 32bit, and know from asking a sales rep and from programs reporting to me to use 64bit instead, but with what I have should I be able to do so without issues? *for windows 7 64bit*

A woman in the live chat HP offers told me that my laptop is fully capable of running a 64Bit OS, due to the processor I have was a different form of celly.

I would say go for it, you have the best opportunity to find out how it runs for free, so what do you have to loose.

The processor does run 64bit. I had build 7048 on there, but not long enough to use thuroughly.

Its worth testing out now so you know if you will need to do any upgrades when Windows 7 is finally released.

64-bit OS doesnt require 4gb in order to run, it just makes more use of it compared to a 32-bit OS which has limitations.
