|Welcome to my blog. Here I am providing information on which systems support the Intel(r) Small Business Advantage (Intel SBA) platform.|
Note that this blog covers finding systems for Intel 3rd Generation Processors - I will be writing a similar blog that covers the Intel 4th Generation Processors once the product SKUs become available.

While Intel(r) Core i5 and Intel Core i7 that are equipped with Intel(r) vPro(tm) Technology will be capable of running either Intel SBA or Intel AMT, not all systems that are capable of running Intel SBA will be capable of running Intel AMT.
The basic requirements for Intel SBA are:
Since we don't normally shop for computer systems based on boards, chipsets and processors, here is a list of OEM platforms that will support Intel SBA for the Intel 3rd Generation Processors.
Note: Not all SKUs below are available from the OEM's website. Many are only available through the channel.
