I ordered the 2.66 mbp and plan to use windows 7 with boot camp.
Do I get the 32 or 64 bit?
You can get either or.
If you're getting 4 gigs of RAM, you should go 64-bit though, so you can use all your memory.
what do you mean "use all your memory"?
does boot camp just use some of the mbp's specs?
Windows 32 Bit ,well, all 32 Bit OSs, are limited to around 3 GBs of RAM. 64 Bit OSs have a much higher limit (16 billion GB judging from Apple's keynote yesterday).
in order to utilize 64bit OS you must have at least 4GB of RAM. otherwise 32bit can handle under 4GB.
and 64bit is capable of addressing 16 exabytes of ram 2^64
Get the 64 bit version man to take advantage of that hardware.
