    Is anyone runs 64-bit Vista on Thinkpat T60?
    Is there any problem with drivers and Lenovo software?

    Another question about Express Upgrade. Lenovo sends 32-bit CD for upgrade from XP Home. Why? T60 can handle 64-bit (the new one at least).
    Is it legal to upgrade to 64-bit instead of 32-bit?
    I know that Microsoft ships Vista with 2 CDs: one is 64-bit, anothe is 32-bit. And you can install what you like. But this is for retail version. Does it apply to Express Upgrade?

    Thank you.

    Actually they ship it with 32 bit with instructions on how to get the 64 bit version. There is not much of a practical advantage to 64 bit right now as most software is still 32 bit.

    Yes, and the most annoying problem is to find out some components have not released any of their 64-bit driver yet. In that case, then you going to feel that you hit the road....
