I have to put Windows on my computer (get this - only because I have to run Explorer). I am going to do this using Parallels.


From what I can see on the Microsoft web site, they only sell upgrade versions of Windows 8.  So I am left with getting a non-upgrade version of Windows 7.  I see that Windows 7 comes in two flavors: 32 bit and 64 bit.  Which one do I want? I have a 15 inch late 2011 MacBook Pro with a 2.2 GHz i7  (4GB 1333 MHz DDR3).

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
