Some core 2s don't support VT.
And nor do Atoms, and they're still sold!

I'd be surprised now if you went into a shop and bought a system that wasn't 64-Bit capable (even the single core 2.2Ghz Celeron M 900 Âis 64-Bit capable now.
What you're more likely to find is CPUs that don't support virtualisation extensions (which speeds up things like VMWare and Virtual Box) such as AMD-V or Intel-VT. ÂMost AMD chips support AMD-V but there's a fair few Intel chips out there which don't support Intel-VT.
