  Most of the 64bit problems are fixed, so I doubt you'll have any
problems specific to 64bit implementation. Certainly I've been using
64bit Fedora on my laptop for ~2 years without problems due to 64bit.
More to the point 32bit implementations cannot handle more than 4Gb of
memory should you ever wish to have 4Gb or more memory.
