    Interesting. I was under the impression that BOTH 32 and 64-bit versions came with 7 professional. From Superbiiz.com, it appears as though you only receive one or the two.

    Am I having a major brainfart, or was I correct in my original assumption? Do you only receive both versions when you use the upgrade?

    According to an article on pre-orders from Microsoft you get both.

    •All editions of Windows 7 available on Microsoft Store include both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. If you choose to buy Windows 7 for download, you will get access to both downloads.

    You can get Home Premium for $100 @ NewEgg w/ a code. Of course, I don't have the code anymore... since I already used it and tossed it, but if you got one, you're golden. ;P

    I believe if you buy the OEM versions, they will be limited to either 32-bit only or 64-bit only. Its only the non-OEMs that have both. can anyone confirm this?
