lol, to avoid potential further confusion you have two options before 
you that you can use that are tremendously more simple , to use VMware 
as you suggested

I would suggest using a virtualization program such as vmware or 
virtualbox, but if your looking for a company with decent technical 
support, I would avoid acer like the plague, maybe dell too and try to 
get a laptop from some where else.

I don't deal with laptops, ....so sadly I would be clueless as to what 
to suggest

But really, as a second option , beyond VM's you could refer to this 
forum topic!
here it is:


this addresses having debian(or any linux), BSD and windows 7 all on a 
single disk with GPT

to be honest you don't need more than 8GB of RAM for day to day use , 
unless your doing some thing intensive like 3D modeling/video/audio 
editing , and it would  not need to be of a frequency higher than 
1333MHZ CL-8 which is what most DDR-3 sdram modules come with.

Let me know if this helps!

Good Luck!
