As a disclaimer, 32-bit (AKA i386) machines should not be thought of as "old" or "outdated". i386 is an architecture that is cheaper and easier to build than 64-bit (AKA amd64). Some cases i386 out-preforms amd64 on smaller computers.

For you musically inclined folk, amd64 vs i386 is like comparing a 6 vs 12 string guitar. We all know the superior sound of a 12 string, but it'll always be more expensive to make than a 6 string.

Except 12 strings sound like shit.
