    I'm not even 100% sure the Core Duo can run 64 bit windows.

    I think he's really asking if bootcamp has a 64bit emulation engine. I doubt it though. The core duo is certainly only a 32bit processor though.

    I'm asking on behalf of someone else so apologies if this doesn't make sense.... so the answer is probably not then?

    3stripe, the Intel Core Duo is a 32bit chip. Bootcamp doesn't emulate anything, it just installs a boot manager, much like the way you would dual-boot Windows with Linux. So the answer is definitely not, I'm 100% sure.

    You probably wouldn't want to run 64bit Windows anyways, I've heard it's buggy (*cough*). Stick with OSX ;)

    It's beyond buggy.

    If you want 64bit then wait for Vista. Then again, the Beta version of that have been buggier than the 32.....

    Shit.

    I'm gonna pop in the 64bit edition of the Ubuntu live-cd and see if that's true. If it is, I'll be pretty happy :)

    64Bit OS needs a 64Bit processor..I would think. So until they upgrade to Core Duo 2, it would not be feasible.

    I dont get why they'd release a 64bit processor as 32bit? I'd definitely have gone for a core duo laptop when i was buying mine if i'd have known.

    I bought a Core Duo lappy, 1.66 GHz and it is awesome. Not a mac, but a Vaio, but much faster than my 1.8Ghz Centrino. I reckon the extra 'sparkly 3D' features of Vista will make any hardware performance increases redundant lol.
