Hello all and TOMdry, :hello:

I am looking for a 15.6" 16" or 17" notebook to use with Windows 7 'XP Mode', Hyper-V, VMWare etc.
It must be an Intel Core 2 Duo powered machine. Note some don't have VT eg. P7350 (Yes I know AMD except Semprons have AMD-V).
If you know of a model capable (i.e. no BIOS hacks) just drop it in here to assist me in selecting a suitable machine.
I'm afraid Dell is not an option unfortunately.
Your assistance is appreciated!

Suggest brands:
Acer
ASUS
Lenovo
HP / Compaq
Samsung
Toshiba

My experience with Supplier Support forums hasn't been great,

I have been looking for the same. Finding an out of the box laptop with windows 7 pro is not easy. you can shortlist your Processors to the p6670, p7570, p8600, p8700, p9550 to make things a little easier. as well as a quad q9000.

There is a high end HP from officemax with the q9000 Core2 quad with VT., again, no Pro so no window virtual XP.

Hope it helps.

I am looking for a lighter notebook but a 17.3" dell with an i7 for $1099 has caught my eye.
