Aldi will be selling the new Medion PC from Thursday 09.00. Has the new 64 bit Intel processor. Big spec machine but no eye deer if it's any good.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Well jimbo it will be fantastic when somebody decides to write some 64 bit software, to the best of my knowledge there is only a small amount of network software using 64 bits so you could argue there is built in redundancy in these machines, the potential of which may unfortunately never be realised. No doubt the "toys for the boys" brigade will swear by it starting with Mr Jones. Then those who wish can keep up.
:rolleyes:

Microthingy are testing a 64bit system and I believe it's possible to try it out. Other than that you are right about 64bit software but what you will get is the fastest 32biit system on the planet.
