Next month the first business desktop computers with Intel's vPro platform will arrive.
The platform, which is based on Intel's recently introduced Core 2 Duo processor along with a new supporting chip set that includes baked-in management technology, will be unveiled in early September, company officials have told eWEEK.

When it launched the vPro brand in April, Intel promised the ensuing platform would help make business PCs easier for IT staffs to administer by offering a number of remote management tools, promoting closer ties to management software makers such as LANDesk and stepping up security. The key to those features is an updated version of Intel's Active Management Technology and the ability to use virtualization. Dubbed AMT 2.0, the hardware/software management engine provides the on-board capability to accomplish tasks such as monitor a PC's hardware and software configurations and thus assess its overall health.
