For the typical home user that watches youtube, plays a few web games, and does email, 64-bit offers NO value.

I actually have 16 GB in my laptop, and I routinely use around 12 of it. I also routinely have 3 VMs running, each with 2 GB allocated, and usually running 15 or so apps in each one, as well as around a dozen web pages open at any one time in my base environment, plus around another half-dozen apps or so. I'm normally manipulating massive spreadsheets (1,000,000 cells+) or crunching through database stuff, connecting via ssh to 15 or 20 servers, etc. In short, very NOT TYPICAL usage.
