APIC is required I believe for SMP machines (2 or more cores or CPUs).
I generally run with it enabled as I have SMP (dual core) machines here.
~ I also use frequency scaling on the laptop so acpi is on for me by
default. When recording though I do lock the CPU frequency via the KDE
power applet (I run KDE on the laptop).
Generally there should be no need for anything other than the default
kernel options unless you are troubleshooting something. I used to use
those options on my laptop before the linux kernel had better support
for my laptop. A couple of bios upgrades helped as well, but this is
kinda OT now

| My 64 Studio will be booted with acpi on:
