SharePoint 2010 Laptops and Processors check - VT

When buying your new laptops or desktops and if you are looking at SharePoint 2010, you must already know that it only works on 64 bit.

So make sure you get a 64 bit machine with atleast 4 GB of RAM in it. Another thing that you need to keep in mind is VT (Virtualization Technology) enabled processors (and thus BIOS as well) - basically this is hardware support for virtualization and the new Windows Virtual PC in Windows 7 as well as Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 require this.

All the more important is the ability to run 64 bit guest OS and applications - so on a Windows 7 x64 host, inside Windows Virtual PC, you can have you Windows Server 2008 x64 with SH 2010 installated and running...

Intel Site helps you to find, filter and choose processors with VT technology and so is the case with the AMD site...
