My friend Vinny who is now currently working in the government sector is looking to buy a laptop. He is looking into Lenovo and Toshiba range of laptops. Yesterday we had a long phone talk with him about the various models and the processors inside them. He liked the Pentium P6100 models because they are pretty cheap. I told him to look for models with Celeron P4500 or P4600 processors. These celeron processors does support VT (Hardware Virtualization).
He did say that there were guys who could offer him custom laptops according to his taste.
