    I want to buy a HP 15 – i5-ac139ns.

    I would like to host some 64-bit guest machines inside (Windows 2012, Exchange 2010…) but I wasn’t sure whether this will be possible.

    So I looked up the processor:…up-to-2_80-GHz

    And I read a confirmation that this processor has Virtualization capabilities when I read: Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)

    But it comes with a warning which I paste here:

    “…‡ This feature may not be available on all computing systems. Please check with the system vendor to determine if your system delivers this feature, or reference the system specifications (motherboard, processor, chipset, power supply, HDD, graphics controller, memory, BIOS, drivers, virtual machine monitor-VMM, platform software, and/or operating system) for feature compatibility. Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration …”

    Which I think it means: Go to HP and ask them.

    I called HP but they weren’t able to tell me so they opened a case and they will call me back tomorrow.

    I was wondering if I could look into this further myself, but don’t know how. I tried on vmware website, hp and INTEL site.

    Thanks in advance.
