so what would be better or wont be a problem if i install a 32 bit... are all the programmes and stuff comatible with my processor?
It really depends on what distribution you intend to use. You may want to dual boot with both sizes, to determine which best supports your laptop. Obviously, there is more legacy support in 32 bit, "most of the time" but YMMV.
