Hi there - I am about to upgrade a Black Macbook laptop running Tiger OS X to Snow Leopard (using a $29 Snow Leopard upgrade disk I bought off Amazon.com) (yes, I know this is sort of late in the day). Do you have any tips? Is there anything I should watch out for? [more inside]

I'm currently running Windows 7 x86 fine and everything runs great. I did however run a routine pc audit with Belarc Advisor and noticed my PC was "64-bit ready". Here are the details of my dv6700 (dv6780se as stated on the bottom sticker)
--1.67 gigahertz Intel Core2 Duo--
--64 kilobyte primary memory cache--
--2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache--
--3072 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory--
System info does state I'm running a 32-bit OS. I have access to a win 7 x64 and would assume a performance increase.
Also HP dropped all support of windows 7 drivers on older machines.

I want to upgrade my HTC Touch HD GSM Windows OS from 6.1 to 6.5.
What is 1.56.OliNex simple comprehensive English?
what is the difference between upgrading through HSPL and USPL?
I don't really know the meaning and the difference between HSPL and USPL, and which one is recommended and less risky?
I went to xda-developers.com and couldn't comprehend there well.

What is the best OS for my old (650MHz Dell with 128MB RAM, 25GB hard drive) PC that I plan to give to my friend's parents? I plan on completely wiping the hard drive, and starting from scratch, but... [more inside]

I'm considering upgrading the processor (and possibly the motherboard) on an older PC. Am I going to have to reformat the HD? Obviously, I'll back up all the data just in case, but I was under the impression that the OS would just find the new hardware upon booting up for the first time. The 14 year-old at the local CompUSA claims otherwise--that I'll have to rebuild the OS once I put the new processor in place. So which is it?
