What laptop do you have?

As long as you have a processor cable of Intel VT, Memory and storage it should be suitable for vSphere 5.5, providing storage controller and network controller are supported.

or you could use VMware Workstation or VMware Player to Host ESXi.

see AutoLab

vSphere 5.0 AutoLab by Alastair Cooke

I would also recommend looking at vSphere 5.0 AutoLabby fellow vExpert - Alastair Cooke
 
What is the AutoLab?

The AutoLab is a quick easy way to build a vSphere environment for  testing and learning using a single desktop or laptop PC and VMware  Workstation, Fusion or ESXi. The whole lab runs in VMs on that one PC,  even ESXi runs in a VM and can then run it’s own VMs.

 Take a look over at ProfessionalVMware for details of how to get started with building your own vSphere 5 AutoLab.
