Bad news for MacBookPro 6,2 owners... Also the CPU supports VT-d (this was the reason I bought it at the time) the chipset doesn't...

Please find last line of this article...
I won't try to fix the NIC driver issue... Flying off to Lenovo.

Has anyone tried Qubes on the 11,1? I'll be receiving my 3.0 i7 next week, and am trying to decide whether to go this route.

Main blockîg problem at the time was the USB keyboard. 

The upgrade to Fedora 20 may have solve some of the problems on my MacBookPro, but I have not tried.
