Hi everybody!

I tried to find information on this myself, but unfortunately I didn't
get very far.
How important is the size of the CPU's L2 cache in regard to the
performance of guest OS's under Xen?
The reason I'm asking is that I have to choose between two notebooks,
one with a smaller size and prize, but only 2MB L2 cache, and the
other one with 4MB L2 cache.
Does the size of the L2 cache has any significant impact on Xen performance?

Many thanks for all opinions!
