do they all run with dual-booting Windows/CentOS systems? is their
environment filled with laptops running CentOS?

well, a few differences: if you run a VM you won't be needing to load any
custom hardware drivers (especially wifi, just use bridged/shared
networking). also you won't get any of the hardware keys on the laptop to
work within the virtual machine. and i'm not sure what happens if you close
the laptop - windows may not be able to hibernate/suspend if the VM is

but still, i'd advocate going the virtual machine route.
