Regarding the Atoms I just found this German article:

"Der x86-Prozessor beherrscht auch gängigen Funktionen wie die
Befehlssatz-Erweiterung SSE3, unterstützt 32- und
64-Bit-Betriebssysteme und -Programme sowie die Virtualisierung in

And these specifications from Intel:
"Instruction Set	64-bit"

And here's a thread about Ubuntu on Atoms at linuxquestions.org:

So also at least the newer Atoms seem to be 64 bit CPUs. But I can't
verify this.
