No, only Mac Pro. That's the 8-core server/desktop system.

Yes, you do get 2 install disks. Both are DL DVDs. The first has the OS and its default applications, and the second has the iLife suite and other applications external from the default Mac OS.

Unless that changed.
I can't testify that you can, but I know that it's not "supported by Apple."

If it is possible, it's not going to be as easy as "pop in the driver disk and let it do its thing."

Why can't you install 64bit on MBP? MBP has emt64...

I know. I'm guessing it's something they just want to restrict.

If you can install 64-bit on other models, you aren't going to get the driver disk for it from Apple. You'll have to find the drivers from somewhere else.

Maybe they'll support it in the future.

Now if m$ had just nose-dived into 64-bit with vista, we wouldn't have this problem... lol

Hardly m$'s fault, but I'm sure Apple would have been compelled to support 64-bit windows if it were the case.
