Default 32- versus 64-bit fedora on an AMD 64 mobile athlon?

moving on, i have a roomful of gateway MX7120 laptops (with AMD
64-bit mobile athlon CPU) that i use for linux training and, until
now, i've just wimped out and installed the 32-bit version of fedora
on them for my clients, and that works just fine.

but i figure, why waste all that 64-bit computing power, so is there
any compelling reason to *not* upgrade them all to fedora x86_64 for
those courses? that is, are there any real show-stoppers when it
comes to fedora x86_64 that would make that version unusable?


p.s. i'm guessing that, since these things have a broadcom chipset,
wireless is still going to be an issue as it is with fedora i386 but,
in my classrooms, these systems are always hardwired so that's not a
problem for me. at least, not yet.
