I'm planning my first workstation replacement schedule to hopefully replace 80 or so computers out of the 125 office. I know the limitations of the 32 bit OS is 3.5 GB of RAM. I believe RAM is the only upgrade that you would do to an business computer. If you put 4GB in them all now does it make sense to go with a 64 bit OS? Do you think typical office computers need 4GB for now and the future, will more be needed? I like the ability to be able to add more RAM to extend the life.
Some users are already on 64 bit and this hasn't caused any issues with our programs that we use but further testing would probably be needed. I believe the only work that would be needed would be to upgrade our print servers to 64 bit drivers.
I feel like now is a tricky time for purchasing because of this question.
