I am currently working on some project which requires cluster installed. However, I do not actually have enough hardware. So I instead chose to setup with virtual machines e.g. virtualbox or kvm.

Ideally the equipment would be max ram up to 16G, multiple cores, dedicated graphic card (need not high class). After doing investigation, hp elite 8460p and lenovo w- series fulfill my requirement. However, it seems that lenovo w-series generally weight over than 3kgs, which is too heavy. And I am a bit unsatisfied with hp's laptop because some personal experience (maybe I was just that lucky.) In addition to these, is there any alternative laptop would be recommended to give a try?

Thanks.
