    If you have 4GB ram then look at the 64bit, otherwise the 32bit is fine :)

    No use in a new thread I dont think

    But I have the 15' uMBP, and my restore disks are back at school.. If I wanted to go ahead and install the RC via Boot Camp would I need the discs for drivers?

    you probably would need them (Unless you can find a download) - also I dont know if they will even run 100% with win7

    (any doubts - leave it for now)

    I have an OS X Leopard disk but I bought it for my old MacBook that had tiger on it. From what i'm reading Windows picks everything up on it's own except for the Sound.
