Do you use Filevault? If so, why or why not?
Depends on the machine and OS. On machines which support AES-NI (Sandy Bridge and newer) you should use FileVault. On all other machines AES-128 encrypted sparse disk images (create them with Disk Utility) are the better choice. AES-256 is much slower, and easier to crack than AES-128.
Which machines support AES-NI?
The SB architecture would be the newer i5/i7 machines correct?
That means Early-2011 and newer hardware.
Yes. SB is the 2nd generation of the Core i3, i5 and i7 processors.
