Which Sabayon 13.04 to Use on Acer Aspire 5742-6674 Core i3-380M Laptop?

Which Sabayon distro to use on Acer Aspire 5742-6674 Core i3-380M Laptop? There are 14 Varities Of SABAYON 13.04: 6- 64 bit & 8 - 32 bit OS.

Should I go with 32 or 64 bit OS? What desktop; Gnome, KDE, Xfce, MATE, SpinBase, HardenedServer, CoreCDX distro type(desktop)?

_amd64_KDE.iso ;_amd64_MATE.iso ;_amd64_ServerBase.iso; _amd64_SpinBase.iso

;_x86_CoreCDX.iso;_x86_GNOME.iso;_x86_HardenedServer.iso; _x86_Xfce.iso
_x86_KDE.iso; _x86_MATE.iso; _x86_ServerBase.iso; _x86_SpinBase.iso.

Think I can eliminate HardenedServer & serverbase editions.

Thanks for reading my post.

I would go with _amd64_Xfce.iso, but then I'm partial to Xfce. Gnome and KDE are too bloated for my tastes, and I don't really like MATE. Your laptop is a 64-bit machine, so why not use all the processing power?
