How do I know whether my computer is compatible with Windows 7 64-bit?

How do I know whether my computer is compatible with Windows 7 64-bit?

Is there even a reason why I should be asking this question? I'm sure it would run but just in case I want to know if it's perfectly safe for me to assume that all hardware drivers will be supported? I have a good laptop that's running Windows 7 RC 7100 32-bit and have my MAPS Win7 Pro 64-bit DVD handy with me... and fidgeting...!

The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor will tell you with certainty whether your computer meets the requirements for Windows 7 x86 or x64.

There is a free utility called Securable that reports the maximum bit length, as well as some other features of the processor it is run on. If this reports 64 bits, you should be good to go.
