Laptops for Virtualization

I'm considering buying a laptop for virtualization and other uses. Of course, that means I need a real screamer. The virtualization I want to do goes far beyond the "load VirtualBox/Virtual PC/VMware Workstation and fool around"-type stuff. Yes indeed; I want to be able to build a virtual infrastructure and simulate a small virtual network, with multiple VMs and applications, interconnected to each other and the outside world the way it happens on a real network. All in software, of course.

Are you doing something like that for testing/certification/sales demo purposes? If so, I'd love to hear what your setup is -- what are the specs of your machine in terms of processor, RAM, storage, etc. This could also apply to a desktop, if you're using one for that.

If you have another way to try out virtualization products and use it in the real world -- remote simulation software, and so on -- let me know that as well.
