Windows 7: Should I Install 64-bit or 32-bit Version? (x64 vs x86)
I have heard that if a laptop has more than 2 GBs of RAM (my laptop has 3 GBs of RAM), then one must use a 64-bit OS for better performance. So how the OS effect the performance of laptop and if what I have heard is true?
From my personal experience, I have seen that 32-bit OSes degrade the performance of my laptop as compared to the respective 64-bit OS; one parameter is that it consumes more battery.
