because i want to have all of the source codes locally in my device, and I don't want bring laptop.
my office already have a laptop. basically, i need a mini server that I can carry around.

The source codes of the website is huge. and need server to run. Plus I may not go to the area that don't have Internet connection.

This is why

Hey Webboy,

I am not sure what kind of laptop you have, but a free VMware version will run Server2008 (R2) just fine if you have a powerfull enough laptop.

here : http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/datacenter_downloads/vmware_server/2_0
you can download VMWare Server. Its free and easy to use.
Hope this helps !
