Default Newegg....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116716

I really like how the System Requirements is written.It looks all good and everything,but it does not say no where in the description if this is 64 bit OS or just 32 bit OS,If i recall when vista came out the retail was only in 32 bit and you had to pay extra 20.00 for the 64bit OS version,Is this the same deal or does Win 7 disk in retail comes able to install both the 32 or 64 bit version of windows?

I don't think anyone knows specifically yet if 32/64 will be on the same disk/in the same box yet (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

As to system requirements, it would be nice if listed, but aside from some games, Vista runs 32 bit apps just fine (for the most part), (which is what most apps are at this point) on Vista 64, so I don't think it's much of an issue...

It is supposed to come with both versions but you of course can only run one version on one machine at a time.

I am wondering this myself because I don't see an option on 32bit or 64bit when buying it.
