At a bunch of my events people want to know exactly what Laptop I am running so they can do Hyper-V. It does have to be a 64 bit machine and have hardware support for Virtualization. So I thought I would include a link here to the HCL.
Systems supporting the x64 architecture and supporting Hyper-V can be identified by the additional maker under the text “Certified for Windows”.
Great article on it here.
