Windows OS advice needed

I have an opportunity to get a refurb 3rd gen i7 quad laptop that's in my budget but it comes with windows 8 32bit OS.

As my £550 budget is unlikely to increase the extra £100s for the next available i7 64bit option, should I snap this up and be confident that I'll come across some free 64bit "educational" OS opportunity at some point? (not sure of opportunities like this exist, am not familiar with the OS world these days)

I don't know how R7 would run on a 32bit system but am hoping it would be ok for a while as my tracks will start off minimal although with lots of parallel fx mixing with the SSL.

I wouldn't mind building a cheaper desktop but my life's too transient and I'd like to stay with the i7 so I've got the extra power for my tracks to get more complex and so that it'll last me a long time.

R7 looks too awesome especially with the SSL, would appreciate some help with this quandary. Thanks!
