I'm familiar with this list from the Wiki. Unfortunately, some
manufacturers specifically disable VT even in Laptops with the noted
CPUs. For example, I got these replies from HP pre-sales support.

"I have gone through the database with the information you have provided
and see that the VT option is not enabled in Intel Core Duo and Core 2 
Duo processors."
"Well Michael, I regret to inform you that this option(enable/disable)
is not available in BIOS for HP pavilion notebook."

I've also talked to some Dell people who seem sensitive to the issue,
and how they were burned after confusion w/r/t the T2300E (apparently
they used to say that it was the same as the T2300), and now direct
people looking for VT to the T2400 CPU (and above).

I appreciate the recommendation for the T60 Lenovo. At least in the
configuration that I'm looking for, it seems significantly more
expensive than a comparable Dell, even after purchasing a 3 yr
