  1. 64-bit Computing holds Great Promise

    The New York Times has written an article describing the benefits of Apple's deployment of the 64-bit G5 Chip.

    Thirty-two bit processors are limited to a theoretical maximum of handling 4 billion bytes of RAM per task. (A byte equals eight bits.) But by the magic of exponential math, a 64-bit processor can theoretically handle 16 quintillion (or 16 billion billion) bytes of RAM. For all current practical purposes, that is an infinite amount.
