I'm looking at this as a replacement laptop.
Does anyone have any experience of running Linux on it?
Is there support for VT-x in the bios.
That page reports it has a
Intel Core i7-2920XM quad-core CPU (2.50GHz, 8MB cache), Intel Turbo Boost 2.0
You can look this up on
Which reports that
All models [in the relevant subsection] support: MMX, SSE, SSE2,
SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep
Technology (EIST), Intel 64, XD bit (an NX bit implementation),
TXT, Intel VT-x, Intel VT-d, Hyper-threading, Turbo Boost, AES-NI,
So the CPU supports VT-x. Whether the BIOS will let you turn it on is
another question, but I don't see why it wouldn't.
