i was trying to be cheap, lol, since I would just be using the computer to type transcription and I knew the ones at walmart cost about 250.00. I will probably go ahead and order from the website you found for me. I don't know enough about this stuff to be picky, lol. Thank you VERY much!

Those are good units for what you'd be using them for, so best of luck to you. Enjoy your new laptop .

I'm curious about that. I personally haven't encountered any 32-bit software that wouldn't run on a 64-bit system.

It exists, mostly software that requires requisite drivers. I've seen medical imaging software specifically fall in this category.

That makes sense.

Its the drivers, he would most likely be able to use the drivers in 32 bit, but have to disable Driver Signature Enforcement and... Just buy a 32 bit laptop.

Or, what you could do is buy a 64 bit Windows 7 laptop, then install 32 Windows with it.

Although Windows 7 has a 64bit version even that can run most 32bit applications without problem. In fact the majority of applications on my 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium are 32bit applications.

Do you have specific information that this application will not run on 64bit Win 7 and that it will run on 32bit Win 7?

Its a medical app, which would probably require drivers that are only compatible with 32 bit and have issues with 64 bit. Except the drivers though, 32 bit applications work fine 64 Windows 7 (Google Chrome for example).
