Default 64-Bit Intel Laptop?

I have ordered a new laptop (Dell Vostro 1510), it comes with Windows Vista Home basic, I have a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate both 32 and 64 bit, I plan to install it on the laptop, but from what I have read, Intel don't have any 64-bit laptop processors at the moment, is this true? It's not a problem as I am happy with 32 bit, just curiosity really. My PC runs 64 bit and its great, but I won't use the laptop for propper gaming, my desktop is for that! Here are the specs of the new laptop by the way:

Dell Vostro 1510
WXGA+ 15.4 inch widescreen 1440x900
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz
160GB Sata HDD
2GB DDR2 Dual Channel
nVidia GeForce 8400M GS 256MB

How much did you pay for that? I'm not sure how that works, never heard of it. Also, you wouldn't even need it, you're not using 4gigs of RAM =p

Dell's site doesn't have 64-bit drivers for that. You could give 64-bit a shot, but no guarantees that everything will work.

Before the screen upgrade it was 380 (P&P was free!), I also got a carrying case ofr it. In the end came to 4XX. Thanks for the help, I'll decide what to put on when it arrives then.
