I have an E1505 and the opportunity to install WIN7 64-bit. I am very hesitant, given the negative talk I've been hearing/seeing. I have some important software that is old and I do not have the financial resources to replace them. What would you all recommend?
Unless you're certain everything will run under Windows 7, be wary. At that, because the system RAM max is officially 2 G (though some report 4 working), the 64-bit version makes little sense -- the 32-bit version will be overall a better performer on this model.
Even with 4G fully supported, bear in mind the footprint of the 64-bit version is larger - what you gain over 3.25 Gbytes, you will lose because the OS uses more RAM.
First, sorry that this post got into the Audio portion of the forum. My mistake.
I am surprised by how difficult it is to find definitive information on what seems to be a common question.
Thank you for your thoughts!
