HP ENVY 700-074 and Windows 8

Is this the 32 or 64 bit version of Windows 8?

It has 12GB of RAM, so it has to be 64-bit.

I'll be honest... I don't think I've seen a computer that had a 32bit Windows 8 install yet.

With pretty much all but the lowest end machines having multicore CPU's, x86 is becoming obsolete lol

DLD, thanks for your inquiry and to the experts here for their responses.  I've found the following Microsoft document useful in responding to yours and similar inquiries.  See here.  Unlike some references, this document has an embedded tool that will automatically detect whether your computer has a 32 bit or 64 bit Windows.  It told me that mine was a 64 bit.  The document also has instructions for manually determining this.  Let us know if you have other questions.
