Intel Core Duo machines don't support VT yet

New computers with Intel Core Duo processor can't take advantage of Intel's Virtualization Technology (VT) for some time, The Inquirer learned.
There's a reason for this. VT for the T2600, the T2500, the T2400 and the T2300 isn't yet implemented, according to recent roadmaps seen by the INQ.

We understand that Intel, or rather the manufacturers of the machines, are likely to offer a BIOS flash but that's unlikely to arrive until the second quarter of this year. The T2700, the top end Intel Duo Core processor which clocks at 2.33GHz, will have VT switched on when it ships.
The Core Duo T2700 is planned for the second half of this year.
