If you are looking to see what the new Windows 10 has to offer, you can download the technical review ISO file which available on Microsoft Website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-iso

Most current computers and laptops support this option and you can check if your computer support Virtualization Technology by using Microsoft Detection Tools.
