A: Intel vPro clients do run great with Win7.  For one thing, you can utilize vPro to help deploy Win7 in your environment.  All the vPro functionality including AMT, TXT, VT-x support Win7.  Take a look at the following white paper for detailed information.

 

Q: What is the difference between Vpro Ready and vpro enabled??

A: A vPro ready system is a system that has the ability to activate and become the powerful machine that it can be(this means it can be AMT enabled, ready for system defense etc). A vPro enabled machine is a machine that has vPro turned on and has been provisioned for certain capabilities like AMT or system defense.
