does the x200 and x200s support intel vt

I have been trying to look on the lenovo site but I can't find information if the x200 and x200s support VT. I have just found out some manufactures like sony have disabled vt in the bios permanetly for their laptops. Can one the x200 and x200s owners check their bios to see if it supports vt? Thanks

Battery maintenance

Is it safe to keep the battery in my x60s when it is shutdown but i still have the charger plugged in and the mains still on? will it decrease battery life?

I tried my neighbor's Sony laptop, and I didn't like the keyboard. It was quite uncomfortable to type. And when I showed him my IBM, he liked the keyboard and he was even thinking to get an IBM too! :lol: What I like from his Sony laptop is the long battery life. When I looked at the battery percen...

I did go to the Sony Style store to touch and feel it, and I wasn't more impressed than it having a great and thin screen. I'm worried about the keyboard layout, and the buttons don't feel that good. And I don't like the Speed/Stamina thing, and the hybrid graphics technology. Knowing how many driv...

lenovo sl300 seems to be a good competitor to the z and x200
http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=4582

Cheap too and at 1.8kg(remove the cd rom drive and it should be near my x60s). has nearly all the capibilities of the z for half the price.
