Ubuntu on AMD64

I've been using Ubuntu on my desktop system for about 5 months now,
and I love it.  I'm getting a laptop this weekend with an AMD 64-bit
processor, and I was wondering how, if at all, Ubuntu changes on a
laptop and a 64-bit architecture.  How is the hardware support?  Are
the same software packages available through Synaptic/apt-get as with
a 32-bit system?  Any comments on this would be helpful.
