    Windows 8.1 32bit or 64bit?

    Hi, I've decided to go for the t100ta, but it seems that as well as a choice of 32 or 64GB models, I also have an option to go for 32 bit or 64 bit Windows. All models have 2GB of RAM, so is there any benefit in going for 64 bit Windows as I seem to recall that to get any benefit from 64 bit, you need a minimum level of RAM?

    I'm no expert, but I'm sure that one of you can give me a steer....

    There are numerous threads about upgrading to 64-bit - and the consensus seems to be that it can't be done. But I've not seen threads about the T100 model that supposedly ships with 64-bit Windows? (Other than T100 Pro with 64bit Windows 8.1 Pro which was closed without being answered, but the linked-to "similar" thread was about upgrading.)

    I'm suspicious as to whether it's just a mistake in the retailer listing, but it would be good to have confirmation.

    In the UK, ASUS have said that the 64GB version is only available for businesses, which the Laptops Direct "T100TA-DK003P" version seems to be, but it was unclear to me whether there are any differences to the consumer 64GB version that's available in other countries, or whether it's just sold through more limited channels.

    I ran into this scenario when I was first shopping for a T100. It's a retail listing error, the T100 does not ship with Win 8.1 64bit.

    I think the confusion comes in because the processor is a x64 Atom processor, but it ships with Win 8.1 32bit OS.

    I think too the two basic versions of 32 and 64 (GB of memory) are sometimes misconstrued as 32 vs 64 bit Windows OS.

    If you want to get in to semantics, storage is memory. It is just non-volitile memory.

    I agree with your point, I am just being a douche.
