VM’s for Computer Science Classes

Hello everybody

I’m not sure if I’m in the right subreddit for this question. I’m about to start my 4th year in Computer Science after the summer break and right now I got a small problem or inconvenience if you can say so. We are using a lot of VM’s some times up to 5 at the same time and ofc my Laptop and most other Laptops are not equipped for that kind of load especially since some of our teachers demand windows server/client VM’s instead of Linux. So rn as a option I thought Cloud VM’s/Computing since spending a lot of money on a new Laptop isn’t really a option and if I could even swap to a lower end config in the future (Higher battery life and thinner) would benefit me a lot more since for most of the stuff I do is not that intensive on my CPU/GPU. So what I’m asking is if there is a service that offers me the ability to have these VM’s run there for the 2 classes I have every week turn them off/not pay until I need them again next week, because paying for a whole week (24/7) but only using then for 8 hours a week is kinda expensive aswell. If it helps I’m based in Switzerland.

Thanks already for all the replys
