As topic states, I am debating which to use. I am planning on dual-booting my laptop with my current Vista install.

Here are the tech specs of my laptop:
AMD Turion 64 x2 TL-56 1.8 GHz
2 GB RAM
32-bit Vista Home Premium w/ SP1.

Will I be able to notice the difference between the two? Is there any difference in hardware/software compatibility?

Thanks in advance!

Definitely 32bit. There is nothing to be gained with 64bit on your system. Before you go thru the headaches of double booting, check this out.
