If you're going to use it for desktop/laptop then I suggest go with
virtualbox instead. It's far ahead of Xen, being able to do seamless
and scale desktop.

Acessing vnc/xrdp/nx running in a domU is no different than  acessing
vnc/xrdp/nx running in a physical server on the network. Good, but not
as good as virtualbox's seamless window.

vnc access thru domU's vfb should really only be use for
administrative purposes. Sometimes you'll get mismatched mouse pointer
or other problems.
