I checked on the Intel site and it seems that your processor (E4500) supports EM64T. I think Mint7 x64 will install and run on your computer.http://processorfinder.intel.com/Details.aspx?sSpec=SLA95

# Enhanced Intel Speedstep® Technology
# Intel® EM64T
# Enhanced Halt State (C1E)
# Execute Disable Bit
# Intel® Thermal Monitor 2

I do believe you should give Mint 7 64-bit a test drive. There is an extremely high probability you will keep it. Have fun.
Currently running in the computer lab:
Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon
CentOS 7 GNOME
Debian 8 LXDE

Just do as I did and dual boot Mint 7 Main Edition and Mint 7 x64. This will give you a chance to compare two OS side by side and decide which is best for your system and computing needs.
PS, I've been dual booting since the RC1 release and still haven't made up my mind. I may just keep both.
