It is probably best to leave this alone, but resistance is futile.
Restraint is admirable.
But still futile!

I'll give you the 2 GB part, as it means x64 isn't really a necessity. I'd still go with it and upgrade the memory.

As for the wireless network comment, my resistance power is weak. Whoever told you that needs a swift kick between the butt cheeks. If you have drivers for your wireless card in Vista x64, then you should also be able to have it working in Windows 7 x64. Once you do, connecting to a wireless network is fully functional.

The release candidate I am using is Windows Ultimate. When I purchase Win 7 I will get the home premium. Will I have any issues installing the home premium? I guess if I do a backup, then a clean install, everything should be fine?? Thanks!
