    Did I miss some public announcement?
    It seems starting with 10.0.14385 the minimum system requirements are 2 Gb ram, anything else change?
    or is this just something new for 64 bit?
    Worked fine before.

    correct. you can install a 32bit os on a 64bit system, but not a 64bit os on a 32bit system. Unless you plan to upgrade your ram, go 32bit.

    Not much, it was a good idea. Built in TV tuner, built in GPS. Just open the hood and look in and all you see is a mouse on a treadmill. Haha. No power.
    Couldn't possibly give it away.
