you wont notice a difference between the two. anyway bootcamp doesnt support the 64bit version, os please dont buy it!!!

uuumm at least 30gb is needed for vista... the OS takes up about 10ish.

Thanks. Going to install Parallels so I can switch back and forth without shutting down.

Oh, it supports it. Apple just wrote the drivers for the 32-bit version, so some of them don't work. That's not as big a problem as it used to be, as there are far more Vista drivers out there than XP ones; many of which work just fine. Again, though, the difference right now is negligible.

oh i thout it said that it doesnt support it, but it will work pretyt much for everything.. just not a few things.. anyway...

the difference, especially on a notebook, will not be noticable. maybe on a 64-core folding server it will be.. man i would kill for one of those :cool:
