Parent article: Xen again
When I bought my laptop, January 2008, I shopped explicitly for one with virtualization capability. However, for a long time I just was not able to use it as such - Because of the lack of support in Xen for core features I want a laptop to support, such as ACPI
This is a fatal flaw in Xen, sure, but I don't understand why it would have stopped you from using KVM. You mention that you specifically bought a laptop with support for hardware virtualization, and KVM works fine with ACPI or any other core laptop feature, since KVM is just Linux.
I bought my laptop in April 2008 and I've been using it with KVM almost from day one. Everything works great, including ACPI.
