That's good to know.  It's one more reason not to buy the Sony.  HP
was the only other company that I knew that had not enabled it in the
bios for some of their laptops.  They released a bios that enabled it
after some pressure from the community.

Most of the Dell laptops that I've seen have a setting in the bios
that will allow it to be enabled as long as the processor supports it.
 I have run windows guests on my M70 using kvm+qemu without any
problems.
