Best Distro for AMD Turion 64

Hi Guys,

I'm looking forward to buying an AMD Turion 64 processor based notebook manufactured by Compaq. I would like to run Linux in it, hopefully in 64v bits.

Which would be the recommended distro that will be compatible with this line of processors.

Thank You,

Best Regards,

I have a Compaq Presario v2413us. It has AMD Turion ML 30, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB Hard drive, ATI graphics. It came with XP 32 bit Professsional. I have added XP 64 and Mandriva Linux x64 2006.0. It runs all three O/S very well. The audio, video, and wifi all work very well too. I use the Acer 64bit wifi drivers for XP 64 and Mandriva with ndiswrapper.
