    I just got this laptop today (really cheap too)
    http://global.acer.com/products/notebook/as5000.htm it has an AMD 64 ML-30
    turion processor at 1.6ghz but it comes with windows xp home. I was a bit
    skeptical when I bought it because nobody seemed to be using xp64 on it. The
    80gb hd comes in two fat 32 partitions, I installed xp64 on the second one
    (converted to ntfs). Installation was smooth and uneventful.

    The hardware on laptop was

    broadcom 802.11g network adapter -> still searching for drivers
    Realtek AC`97 audio -> I found and installed the 64bit drivers
    Texas Instruoments PCI-1410 cardbus -> drivers installed by xp64
    Sis 900 based pci-fast ethernet -> drivers installed by xp64
    Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-833S -> drivers installed by xp64
    SIS M760GX (graphics) -> to my surprise sis had a 64bit driver for it! yay
    :) http://www.sis.com/download and follow the step by step.
    Agere Systems AC`97 modem -> don't use it, so don't care.

    So the Acer Aspire 5002WLMI can run xp64 if anyone wanted to know. I heard
    the 5020 was a better laptop tho, I think it uses an x700 graphics card
