Hi guys,

I was just wondering why my brand new core i7 macbook pro is running in 32Bit mode.
Isn't it capable of 64 Bit and wouldn't that be much faster?

Should I default the kernel to 64bit or will this mess up every second program?

Best, Shel

[Try this][1] (Yes I'm self promoting myself. lol) and no defaulting into 64 bit mode (normally) shouldn't screw anything up because 64 bit is just an extension of 32 bit
