    Confused about 64 vs 32 bit Windows
    I have an opportunity to purchase either Windows 7 professional or Windows 7 Ultimate at a discounted price. Either version would cost me the same.

    I am confused about which one I should get.

    I used to run Windows via Virtual Box but would go Bootcamp if necessary. I need Windows to run Tunebite, MS Office and some of Sony's dictaphone software.

    I have a MBP, 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo with 8 GB of RAM.
    13" MPB, 16GB RAM, 1TB; 15" MBP, 2.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM; MBA
    iPod Classic (7th generation); iPad Mini, 64GB Cellular (1st generation)
    iPhone 5, iPhone SE, iPhone 4

    If you can get the Ultimate version at the same price, buy it. Use the 64 bit version rather than 32 bit as the 64 bit version will allow use of all your installed memory. 32 bit Windows (any version) will only use approximately 3.6 GB of installed memory.

    I wouldn't recommend you bootcamp. IMO is much better to run windows through VMware Fusion. That way, you don't have to give away all that space on your HDD just to have windows installed.
