Hi guys,

 

my iMac8,1 (Spring 2008) has an Intel Core 2 Duo, which according to some posts I have read online, it should have a 64 bit processor. On checking the Software, under 64-bit Kernel and Extensions it says "no". Can someone please clarify is it a 32 or 64 bit?

 

Or does it mean that the reason it says no is because it isn't using the 64 bit? Would I be able to use it if needed, and if yes, in what circumstances would I need to do so?

 

Many thanks


iMac8,1, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
