There is a website that can be used as a reference for Intel Processors and which technologies they support:  

When purchasing a system from an OEM Website, it may be necessesary to look at the specs and dig a little deeper than your shopping cart in order to ensure your system has all of the right components (not all Core i5 and Core i7 support Intel AMT and those that do may not all support KVM.)
If you have any questions regarding Intel® AMT Technology, please post your question on our Developer's Forum.
