    Is apples new OS going to run well if I install it on my super old macbook 32 bit? I sure hope so because when I bought it the experts at the apple store told me it would run fine, but now I know that the new OS will be 64bit I am a little scared. Will it have support for 32bit apps? I can't take this stuff anymore. Its so hard to ever buy an apple product because a month later they(without any warning) come out with a new model that makes yours old and obsolete.

    Calm down, man! Leopard will be 32-bit and 64-bit... you won't miss out on any features or anything. 90% of applications will be 32-bit only for the next few years, and even then most apps won't see a huge advantage with 64-bit. The Apple guys didn't lie to you. Apple has a great track record for supporting their older machines with new OS'es.

    Ok thanks I feel better now. I was talking to some people and they were acting like my macbook 2.0 was a apple 2 or something and saying the core 2 duo was a better choice for the new os because of the 64 bit support.
