It might be, but I could not find it. I have to get a laugh out of my experience at finding a machine loaded with Vista 64, called Dell , sales person says Vista 64 What?! The person was real nice and helpful when I made it understood what I wanted, still did not have a cookbook way of assembling a machine with a 64-bit OS. Said they would get back to me. Have an email at HP right now asking the same question. Asked a local electronics specialty place if they would make me one, they said yes but that I would have to supply the Vista 64 OS. Plenty of 64-bit CPU machines out there, but an off-the-shelf with a 64-bit OS .... well , not so easy, I guess?
