I already found an interesting thread here: https://www.reddit.com/r/AskNetsec/comments/43ruw8/need_advice_creating_a_home_and_mobile_lab_xpost/
I do have a very similiar Setup rocking here.
What's different here is:
- MSI GE60
- Lenovo X220
- 256GB Samsung pro SSD (Currently lays in the GE60 machine)
- And a couple of USB Sticks and HDD
The GE60 with the SSD has Windows10 on it currently, but after getting done with it I will switch now to Linux I think.
But all in all I would like to know how you guys would setup such setup - Windows as a mainOS with different virtual machines on it? Fire up Linux on it?
Same goes with little X220, I was thinking about using Arch Linux on it, or just something more mainstream and lightweight (Xubuntu?). I was even thinking about to put the SSD into this little X220 with Linux on it, so it would be a little faster though.
Anyways, let me know.
