Windows 7 minimum is 1 gig, but windows server can live happily on half that. But with 12 VMs .. yeah 16 gigs should be your target, minimum 12, along with a nice hyperthreaded quad core and an SSD. You should be gold then. I think JD is going a little over the top, I'm assuming you're just 'toying' as it were with these, setting up domains and whatnot, not actually using them realistically. I don't have any specific recommendations, you might want to look at "gaming" laptops though.. they do have a GPU, yes, but it's really not all that significant in power consumption, and I find they can be (not always) cheaper then "workstation" laptops..
