Hello,
I have a toshiba satellite notebook with Intel Duo CPU T6600, which I just found out does not support hardware assisted virtualization.

Can anyone recommend a processor with similiar (or better) performance which is suited for the satellite and supports virtualization?

Thanks
Thomas

The Core™ 2 Duo T7500 would probably be the best choice, it runs at the same clock speed of 2.2GHz, however it has 4MB of cache, double the size of the T6600, and it does support Intel Virtualisation. However, I'm not sure if you could upgrade the laptop's CPU.

Thanks I appreciated the quick feedback, as you pointed out I still need to find out if I can upgrade the laptop.
