From what I know, we dropped support booting from 32 bit architecture on

Well, there are apparently more and more systems with 32 bit firmware
emerging. So you probably need to reconsider it (see bug report
mentioned somewhere in this thread).

and only *boot* support is needed, install can follow as 64 bits.

my IT WORKS TW891 is only 129€ for 1280x800 screen, 32Gb ssd and 2Gb ram.

of course, supporting a tablet is not that easy, not all works natively, but I don't ask for full support, not even to have it on mainstream Leap, but If I could build a Leap network install on Studio to support these machines, it could be a significant step on. Main stream support is probably not that important, because as price drop and memory get bigger, the need for 32 bits should hopefully vanish :-)
