Moving to 64 bit laptop OS to run Oracle 12c

I wanted to download the new version of the Oracle database software to test it out but I have an old laptop running Windows XP, a 32-bit OS.  So far Oracle hasn’t released a 32-bit Windows or Linux version on their download page.  They may eventually release 32 bit versions but I don’t want to wait.  So, I finally have to bite the bullet and get a new Windows 7 OS laptop.  I could have gotten one a long time ago but I didn’t want to take the time to reinstall everything.  I can hardly use my family’s Windows 7 laptop (and the newer version of Office that it has) because I’ve stuck with such an old laptop for work use.

Time to enter this century and move to 64 bits on my laptop.  32 just isn’t enough in 2013.
