Nothing as such

Legend Never Ends
I think it would be ideal if you go for an i7 based laptop rather than a i5 one. That also means you will have to spend a bit more.

Yes this is way way way over your budget but it should be worth it.

I just couldn't find any non-u(low power) series i5 in this range. Ideally for VMs it's best you run them on a Laptop. Also don't expect 3-4 hours battery life when you run multiple VMs at the same time.
