A virtual world on your laptop.  
DreamWorld wants to be the installer for the rest of us
Dreamword brings your personal OpenSimulator grid much closer to feasible, but it still takes some geekery.
"The Outworldz DreamWorld is a free, pre-packaged Windows-compatible virtual reality OpenSimulator system that is easy to install, easy to run, and easy to use. It is free and is open source."
