Getting a new Laptop on Wednesday and I know it's shipping with Vista Home Premium. Can I safely assume that it'll be the 32 bit version?

If it makes any diff the Laptop will have an AMD Athlon TM64 CPU which I think is dual core?

Yeh I expect it will be 32bit.

Wonder if you can send of for 64 like on the retail version (I doubt it).

Retailers are stupid for still supplying 32bit.

cool thanks guys. need to look for a new firewall you see as my currect one (ashampoo) doesn't support vista as far as i know, and i don't like comodo (can't get it to let my 360 through so i can stream music).

the firewall is very much a backup though as i connect to the net using a nat router.

Just use the default Vista one, if you're using a hardware firewall etc already. It does the job. :)
