A few questions, presume I would be better with the 64 bit OS over 32 bit - no cost difference - is 4GB mem the best option, I may be confused but thought this worked better in 3's (ie 3GB or 6GB). Also for an extra tenner I can get 1333Mhz mem instead of 1066Mhz - worth the investment? Are there any disadvantages of having a vostro over an inspiron? Any better offers/options?
