Virtualization on your laptop
Recently my work laptop is "acting" up. And I am planning to buy a new one. I have decided on a particular laptop model (acer 4552g cheap one at only about $700) with a phenom n930 quad core- cpu has amd-v support.
After careful thought- I have decided to use virtualization on my laptop. As I am a programmer, I have thought about the benefits of using virtualization in my work. so anyway-
my questions are-
- Anybody with this kind of setup?
- What virtualization do you use- as I would be using graphical guests (and graphical host as well)- I think virtualbox would have to be the easiest. I am thinking my host is debian (which I would not be upgrading at all after a while) and my primary guest is ubuntu- which would be primarily my work environment as well.
- How do you find working in a guest os? Is it easy- any lags, comfortable etc
Thanks a lot!
