How to set up a laptop for SSAS tabular?

I'm struggling to understand how to set my laptop up so I can try out Power View and the new tabular stuff in Analysis Services. It all seems to revolve around SharePoint but I don't know whether there's a sort of development 'SharePoint service' like the mini ISS you get in Visual Studio for web development, or whether you install SharePoint as well. Does anyone know (or know where I can find out), please?

I've been following this guide: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3402.how-to-build-a-sql-server-2012-hyper-v-virtual-machine-kiwi-build.aspx but haven't tested with BISM and Powerview. Think the same steps should work as long as you select "Tabualar" at the appropriate juncture.

Yes, you will definitely need SharePoint in order to use Power View. I'm not aware that there is yet a "single box" install guide for the 2012 BI stack, but you can start with this guide which explains how to get all the SharePoint and SQL 2008 Power Pivot components installed in a single VM, and adapt it for SQL 2012 as required. http://powerpivot-info.com/post/66-step-by-step-guide-on-installing-powerpivot-for-sharepoint Duncan

Thanks Duncan. SQLSophist's answer is the closest but yours gives a bit more detail on the SharePoint bit, which is hardly my specialist subject.
