This is a V2P Question, not a P2V!

I need a solution that will take a Windows 7 VM on ESX 5.1 and convert it to a bare metal system.  I had the fortune of doing the reverse - a P2V - just before my hardware crashed on my laptop. So, now I have my laptop in a VM on ESX.  I just acquired the same hardware that crashed and I'd like to find a cheap and hopefully easy way to do it.

I've looked at a few expensive options that cost more than my laptop, hopefully there is a cheaper way.
