There used to be a few SharePoint 2010 Development vhd's available online. However as it's no longer the most recent version and the demo versions of the software were 'timebombed' to expire on given dates they are no longer available.

You'll have to build your own using HyperV or VMWare.

In MSDN you get access to the individual products that you can install but not pre-built VHDs. (I have an MSDN Ultimate subscription, and I just double checked.)

There's an install guide for dev environments here;

Check your laptop has plenty of RAM - 8GB or above ideally.

With an MSDN account, you also access to an MSDN based Azure Virtual Machine Environment. You can create Virtual Machines in the cloud for free. There are many pre-baked Virtual Machines to choose from. You can run these in the cloud with as much disk and RAM as you need. The only limitation, to my understanding, is your compute time (amount of time your CPUs run on the VMs). In other words, make sure you don't leave the VMs on after your testing because you'll quickly reach your limit.
Once you reach your limit though, you can choose to pay for additional compute time. Depending on what your doing, it make actually be a really good deal. Check it out!
