No opinion on VirtualBox, Xen or performance thereof, but kvm is also an
option. I sometimes run virtual machines for development, on a laptop
with ext3 over LVM over dm-crypt (so the complete stack from VM to disk
is: ext3, qcow2, ext3, LVM, dm-crypt, disk) and I've had acceptable
performance. I use virt-manager to simplify dealing with the VMs.
