In this case, use Fedora. Since the release of windows 8 and 2012 (and 
even before) and UEFI, all new hardware are 64 bit capable, and even ARM 
will release a 64 bit version. Remember that in RHEL, 'E' is for 
Enterprise (and in CentOS, 'ent' means the same). That is, stability and 
maintennace on the long term are more important than recent desktop apps.
