Hi Ian,

The features that you mentioned (e.g. vPro, TXT) are embedded into the non-K processors to ease remote access, deployment of security updates, and protection against software-based attacks - especially useful for IT administrators in corporate environments.

In other words, these features are less applicable for use by home users.

Here i found the picture chart i was referring to.



Notice the bits for the i7 non k where it has features that the K version doesn't ?

What are those actually for ? Are they worth even having ?
