I had some problems with Client Hyper-V on my Windows 8 laptop and
gave up on it. Specifically:

1. You need two network interfaces active if you want to use
networking from both the host and the guest. On a laptop which
normally runs wifi, like in a coffee shop, this means you'll have to
buy a USB wifi adapter.
2. There was some contention over USB for the Logitech wireless mouse.
I had to use the trackpad.
3. You can't have VMware Player / Workstation or VirtualBox installed
if you're using Client Hyper-V. The drivers conflict.

My recommendation for desktop virtualization on a Windows host is
VMware Workstation. It works, it's not expensive and it's a good bit
more efficient than VirtualBox.
