    I am getting a new laptop with Windows 7 Professional tomorrow. I will have the choice of installing either the 32 or 64 bit version. I have a Hero running stock Android 2.1 that I sync with Outlook (2007). I have read in several posts here and elsewhere that some people have had problems syncing ith the 64 bit version. Is that still the case or can I install the 64 bit version and be able to Sync?

    Has anybody had any other problems with Windows 7 because I could choose to downgrade to XP (which I am using at the moment)? I think that would probably be a retrograde step, but I do have some old legacy printers I use at present.

    this shouldnt be a reason for choosing for 32 bit. this will cap your laptop capabilities greatly assuming you have a 3GB+ of RAM.

    and for android, everything will get fixed in the end. if it hasnt been fixed already

    I have 7-64bit and while it didn't automatically work I was able to install the driver's manually. Unrevoked's or XDA's site has a easy walk through with everything you need can't remember which one.
