According to the Intel website, the 2.0 GHz Crystalwell processor does not have Intel vPro technology, while the 2.3 and 2.6 (as well as 2.4, which is not in the MBPs) do have it. This is rather outside my area of expertise, but my understanding is that vPro is Intel's hardware-level remote management technology, allowing sys-admins to access and control computers from afar, even if they are powered off. This strikes me as possibly useful in enterprise, but also a potentially huge security vulnerability. So...do you have expertise in a relevant field, and if so does vPro present risks of remote-takeover by hackers/malware/botnets/etc.?
