Core Duo: 32-bit or 64-bit ?

  1. I just bought a Sony Vaio VGN-FE660G laptop with an Intel Core Duo processor.
    According the what I've read, it secretly is a 64-bit chip. So is it okay to
    download the 64-bit version of Vista?

    Get the 32 bit version of Vista. Core Duo is only 32 bit.
    the newer Core Processors (Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Solo) are 64 bit.

  3. No, it is not 64-bit enabled. The next version of Core Duo (2), as Kip
    mentioned will be 64-bit enabled, its code named Conroe and Merom. You
    probably won't Merom, until around August 2006.
