In this case, the OP is looking to use Virt on a laptop, I doubt he is 
going to be running dozens of VM's each with a performance interest. And 
considering Xen lags in its kernel upstream support, does not work with 
a large number of drivers, does not like cpu throttling etc - it makes 
near zero sense running that on your laptop.
