well, i'd go for a pentium-m unless you like fan noise ;-)

unless i really missed somethin, pd is broken on 64bit hardware ... if
i'd have some time / get my hands on an 64bit machine, i'd try to do
something ... 
so the only thing to do is waiting ... 1, 10 or 100 years ... hopefully
pd will support 64bit machines before 128 bit processors become common
