[SOLVED]32 or 64bit?

Postby grobar87 » 2020-04-16 13:16

Hi,
I want to install Debian 10 on my 12 years old laptop Dell Vostro A860.
I'm looking for a speed, so i want to go with a minimal installation only with windows manager probably dwm.
Laptop configuration:
CPU: Intel Pentium Dual T2410 @ 2x 2.00GHz
RAM: 4G DDR2
VGA: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller
HDD: 160Gb
Laptop supports 32bit and 64bit, so what to choose for this machine? Wnat would be faster?
Thanks.

Simple. Always install a 64 bit OS on a 64 bit system.
