    Windows 10 64-bit version installing on a new Laptop?


    Hi,

    I am considering to buy myself a new Dell Latitude series laptop and I want to clean install Win10 on it.
    I want to install the 64-bit version of Win10 but how can I make sure or know if that new laptop (or ANY laptop) on the market will have a x64 based processor in which I am running now as shown from my image.

    So in order to be running Win10 (64bit), a system must have a x64 based processor, but how will I know this when I am in a market for a new laptop?

    Thanks

    Looking at advertisements, if 4GB RAM or greater is mentioned it's a sure bet it's a 64-bit computer with a 64-bit OS/Operating System. Haven't seen many with 4GB running 32-bit OS [a limitation] although a 64-bit CPU can run a 32-bit OS.

    But once you start with the 32 bit the allocated memory drops to 3 gigs, the limit 32bit can address.

    I think you would be hard-pressed to find a new laptop that wasn't 64-bit compatible. Seems like you are putting too much worry into something that isn't going to be an issue.
