I'm buying a laptop in little less than a week after my pc is done at auction,rite now i got a p4 3.0 with 2 gb of ram , well I know the new os was going to be 64 bit os?, How important is it to get a 64 bit AMD laptop over, a Pentium , or sempron? Will it effect me alot?...............

Not really. When Vista is realised there will be both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. The main problem at the moment is drivers, not all companies have 64-bit drivers and even then they are hard to find.

Despite being an AMD fanboy, I recommend you get a Pentium M, make sure its not a Celeron M though. Their great, have low heat output and are very fast!
