    There are lots of laptops that meet those specs - some of the important questions would be:

    What screen size are you after and how light does it need to be? You could get a 13" ultraportable or a 17" beast with those specs :).

    Also, any particular budget in mind?

    Because you mentioned virtualization, it may be nice to have and SSD + HDD combo, as you can use the SSD for your main OS, then the 1TB SSD for VM storage:

    I partly suggest this Dell model, as it'll be able to withstand higher utilisation than some of the consumer level laptops. i.e. they're not really designed to run at near 100% for a long time, where as this model should hold up a bit better (which may be needed if you're running several VMs at once). It's not super high-end, but a good balance between cost and components. The CPU also supports VT-x / VT-d.

    It meets all your requirements as far as I'm aware: gigabit ethernet, dual band AC wifi, etc....
