FWIW, I strongly disagree. You get much better performance per clock on a
64-bit machine even when running in 32-bit simply due to chip architecture
improvements including SSE2 among other things, and the price should not be
that different when compared with the 32-bit offering (as long as you don't
go for the FX stuff). Also, heat dissipation as well as battery life (if
considering laptop) is definitely a plus when compared with Pentium4
offering. Pentium-M processors are also nice but also generally more
expensive.

I've been using the eMachines (now Gateway) M68xxx series with 32-bit Linux
and have practically abandoned using my desktop altogether.
