Thread: Is it just me or...?

    Is it just me or...?

    Has anyone else noticed a few computer manufacturers putting out 32 bit Vista Home Premium and 32 bit Windows 7 Home Premium retail units (desktops and laptops) with 4GB RAM?

    I played dumb with a retail zombie from Bust Buy and he said "oh even on a 32 bit machine it enables you to have better and smoother graphics and to be able to fly through video editing". Hmm ok Jethro.

    It sounds more like a way of enabling the retailers to keep some older designed units up in price when they should actually be selling for $100-$200 less than MSRP. Not a gripe just curious if anyone else had noticed it recently?

    32bit can't handle more then 2gb or something like that, right? Thought that was just XP? It's 241am, sorry for mental lag.

    XP couldn't handle more than 3gb of ram -- Windows claims that vista/7 bumped that limit up to 4gb through some trickery.

    Confusion sets in. I got 8gb in my rig --- but it's 64x, so I guess that explains that mystery.
