Is it only me or VT (Intel Virtualization Technology, allows one hardware platform to function as multiple "virtual" platforms)
present in the latest Intel CPU ( the flag is called "VMX" by Intel) is disabled in the BIOS of all latest Clevo notebooks.
Every CPU from u2500 to t7600 supports this feature.

I don’t really understand why someone on purpose should drop this flag and disable feature?

edit: as far as i noticed (i have Clevo m570u and Sager n6630) its all goes from the same base bios for 945 chipset. I currently have 1.00.04A(latest as far as i could find) bios version.
BTW: here's very long forum thread with the same issue for HP laptops:
