Computer Buying

If you read this blog much, you know I have a tendency to lean toward Apple Computers. Have you seen the way-cool new iMac? Take a look at Apple – iMac G5

But, of course, we all know that Windows runs the world, and I was in Best Buy this week shopping for a Windows machine. The salesman informed me that an inexpensive machine with a 32 bit processor was a waste of money, because in a few months Microsoft is going to come out with Longhorn, which will only run with 64 bit processing. He urged the purchase of a 64 bit processer power box that was several hundred dollars more. When checking on this claim later, I discovered that Longhorn runs on either a 32 bit or a 64 bit machine. Be warned.
