I have a notebook and the processor is AMD Turion64 how do I best take advantage of this technology, what does it really means to me?  I am expecting to have Vista in hand soon and was told this notebook is Vista ready, but what is the difference between a 64 bit notebook and a 32 bit?  Please do not tell me it's 32 bits, I mean the performance difference, etc.  what can I do different, etc..... How is the technology different then say a duo core?  and does this feature 64 bit make a difference in value?  This is important as I am always buying, selling and trading laptops and I like to be able to converse intelligently about features I claim a laptop has!
