I'm surprised : I've bought a dell inspiron 1525 (celeron version) with only ubuntu.
The kernel installed originally is based on 32 BIT however the processor supported 64 BIT (I have look on Intel site, Celeron 540). 
Do you know the reason of this choice of configuration ?
This week I'll install a debian etch, I'll test with amd64, what do you think about this ?
