    I took delivery of a nice cf-31 mk4 today. Under 6k hours, and in very good condition. Even better than I expected.

    Here's the mystery. Bios says 32 bit operating system, with 3 (and something) gb usable memory, with 8gb installed.

    But the Windows system page (visible when you hit properties after left clicking computer icon) says its a 64 bit Windows operating system with 7 (and something) gb usable memory 8 installed. I bought the machine thinking it was a 64 bit system.

    What should I believe, and how do you explain the variance? Sorry if this is a common occurrence. I'd never heard of it before.

    32bit systems only support 4gb of memory. All I series processors are 64bit. Your Windows copy is 64 bit. Your system is 64bit too.
    All the toughbook bioses say how much memory they support in 32bit.

    Does it say
    8052 MB (3114 MB for 32bit OS) ? Numbers may be different.

    Just a normal information thing.

    Yes, thanks folks. Didn't realize Bios just reported on 32 bit. Much appreciated.

    BTW, though I'm not much on Windows 10, the cf-31s are really fast, and the screen is blinding bright. Now to get that ssd . . . . ; )
