We've just bought 2 new laptops, a HP G72 
& an Asus A52F 

I've installed on the HP with only one minor problem (wireless didn't 
work OTB, but an update of packages solved that, everything else has 
worked OTB. For the Asus, I've tried a live USB and everything seems to 
work OTB. Both are 64 bit.

I've not had any problems with different apps, I've got flash & skype 
working with no problems, the only thing that doesn't work is the free 
version of minecraft.

Hope that helps.
