    Does anyone have a 64-bit VMWare Guest OS successfully running on an
    Intel-based notebook? If so, can you share what make and model your
    notebook is? Thanks!

    I'm using an AMD machine, but it *should* work fine, the only 64-bit CPUs
    not capable of running a 64-bit guest in VMware are some of the early AMD
    ones. I think VMware even has a free utility available that tells you if
    your CPU will work. The biggest issue, I think, would be making sure you
    have plenty of RAM for both your host and guest to run simultaneously
    without choking.

    Ah, here it is.
    I guess this doesn't help if you don't have the laptop yet. :p

    Thanks - I know about the AMD machines, thats why I was specifically asking
    about the Intel-based machines.

  5. While I am not running a Core 2 Duo laptop I am running VMWare 6 beta on a
    C2D desktop with an XP Pro x64 guest.
