I need a laptop as a test machine for Hyper-V, nothing fancy. I found this one:

HP Pavilion dv7-6130ez

The general specs (8 GB memory, 1 TB disk) seem very sufficient for my purposes and the CPU (2 GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM) is listed by Intel as supporting both x64 and VT-x:


Is that all I have to pay attention to and/or can somebody confirm that this laptop will be able to run Hyper-V and Windows Server 2008 R2?

As long as the CPU Supports Intel or AMD VT, and there is enough memory, you should be good to go. Weather its supported or not is a different story... you may have problems (YMMV) when it comes to graphics drivers and wifi drivers.
