All the current Intel Centrino platforms have support for the intel
extensions. I find the penryn processors very good and have run up to
3-4 virt machines on my Dell D630. It has a T9300 processor which has
6 meg cache (not sure how useful that is for virt) but I would
recommend lots of RAM, and a 7200 RPM HDD.

Well there's fedora-virt [1] but I would suggest the usual
fedora-[users|test|devel] lists are also a useful place to discuss
virt, as long as its on topic with the particular list. fedora-users
may be relevant for non-experts stuff, or maybe -test if your testing
new stuff etc.
