Does running one Virtual Machine on a HYPER-V box make sense


I am considering running HyperV for all my servers, because backup and disaster recovery plans are easier, when I can move the images around to any hardware and not have to worry about drivers.

However, my machines are not powerful enough to house maybe more than 1 or 2 virtual machines.

Does running 1 virtual machine on a box make sense?

We do this with one of our demo environments for the sole reason that it can easily be backed up, blown away or moved to a developer's machine for tweaking.

The reason why we only run one is due to the high system requirements of the demo (CPU usage and memory usage). Having multiple running at the same time is not feasible.
