Recently, I bought a copy of Windows 8 Pro.
Since I purchased my laptop 3 years ago, I have always run a 32 bit system on it. This includes Vista --> 7 --> 8 Pro
I clearly remember that when I have checked the "System Specs" in Windows 7, it says that my computer is not a 64 bit compatible system. I was like, ok, thats fine.
But today, I suddenly decided to check the specs (with 8 Pro), and suddenly under the System Type, it says: 32-but operating system, x64-based processor:
I never knew I had a 64-bit processor. Does this mean I am able to "upgrade" Windows 8 to 64-bit (as I have the disk), or is this an error?
Also, if I were to upgrade to 64-bit, would there be a loss of performance, or would Windows run better considering that I would be using the correct "system"?
