I am working on a laptop and the processor can support 64bit, but it is only 1.6Ghz (dual core). He said it has been running slow lately (I am sure it is mainly malware) but was trying to get him to put Linux like Ubuntu or Debian. (I am thinking about surprising him by putting Linux on there but how do I do the drivers (especially since there are SD card reader, webcam, etc.
But I may go and just install windows 7 back onto it. Which would be better; the 64-bit OS and 4GB or 32-bit and 3GB of ram? (I obviously know 4 is better than 3 but was wondering if the 64Bit puts more stress on the CPU, or something else, to make it not worth the extra GB).
Thanks for the advice!!
