I have this laptop

NEO Elan L2110
Processor Intel® CoreTM2 Duo Processor T8100, 3 MB L2 cache, 2.10 Ghz, 800 Mhz FSB
Memory 4 GB DDR2
Hard Disk Drive 160GB SATA

And following VMs running

  • 2 node 10gR2 RAC on OEL4.4 x86 with OCFS2 and ASMlib
  • 10gR2 on OEL4.5 x86 with ASM raw devices
  • 10gR2 Data Guard on OEL 4.7 x86-64 both on ASMlib
  • Enterprise Manager Grid Control on OEL 4.4 x86
  • 10gR2 and 11g Database Vault and 10gR2 Audit Vault on OEL 4.4 x86

It would be nice if you could have 8GB of memory plus more disk space for you VMs, I'm currently having issues with disk space so all my personal files are on my external drive and the laptop just got the VMs. I could simultaneously run the Grid Control and RAc. I'm thinking of consolidating some of them in one VM to free up some space..
