As I'm an IT-professional, I would like to buy myself a laptop on which I can run several vm's.
I will both try Hyper-V and VMWare, so both should be able run on the laptop (Hyper-V is specific regarding CPU).
SInce I will be running vm's simultaneously (to setup a testdomain etc), I would like to have at least 8 GB of RAM a big harddisk and strong CPU. Besides that, in evening and weekends I might use it to watch some movies or listen to music so a big screen (17 inch) would be nice.
I kind of hoped to spend around 500 - 1000 Euro's.
If found the HP DV7-6140SB for about 900 Euro's, the Toshiba Satellite C670-12X
for about 500 Euro's. Didn't look further yet since I wanted to have your opinion, here should be the experts. Can you advice?
