Best laptop for running multiple VMs on Workstation 7

I just my my tax return back and am looking at upgrading my laptop. Basically I am looking for a lot of horsepower so that I can run multiple VMs at the same time using Workstation 7. I am going to be running a vSphere vCenter VM, an ESX 4 VM, and hopefully a Windows 2008 VM at the same time. I am thinking that something like the HP DV7T i7-720QM QUAD CORE 8GB 500GB should do the trick. Any thoughts? THANKS!

Hello.

That sounds like a fine machine for what you are after. The memory is definitely the biggest consideration on a modern machine. There is some additional information in this discussion.

Good Luck!
