Is my processor x32 or x64 bit – Mac OSX

Open the Applications folder or navigate to where Terminal is and allow it to run, then type uname -a and see what it produces. If you are presented with

.. /RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

then you have a processor capable of both x32 and x64 bit operation, if however you are met with

.. /RELEASE_I386 i386

then you are limited to x32 bit functionality.
