I too think that a 64 bit system will be better, because it can use more RAM for example. But I think too that the home version will fill your needs and is cheaper than the premium version.
Here you can compare the versions:

And here you can see the FAQ concerning the difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Windows:

Thank you for your suggestion. I know about this company. In fact I did buy computer from them several months ago. I had to send it back. Just did not work right. I invested about one month of my time working with technical support on the issue and they could not fix it.
People at tech support were great, sales I do not know. They cost me money on the long run since I had to pay shipping sending system back.

Oh well. One other business investemtn I guess.

I second a ThinkPad. My t61p is the best notebook I've ever purchased, and I've purchased a lot.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I have the X61 as one of the computers, and it's been more stable than any computer I have ever had. Just the small screen of 12 inches is killling my eyes.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.
