      Note: there are also lots of machines with CPUs that DO support VT, but the motherboard/BIOS DOESN'T so check carefully before you buy.

        AFAIK not all do. However, I used to work for Dell and I would not be surprised if this feature has not yet made it's way into the custom BIOSes that Dell use. The same board and CPU combo with a "standard" bios on it may well work, I've seen a few odd faults around relating to BIOS revisions.

        I haven't tried it myself but a friend of mine told me you can use CPU-z to check if your chip/board support Hardware Assisted Virtualisation.
