Ok running Kubuntu 11.04, is it possible to get XEN 4.1 installed to virtual a laptop running Kubuntu ?

The generic answer would be "yes, if you compile xen hypervisor, tools, and dom0 kernel from source".
AFAIK there's no packaged version (yet) for either Debian or Ubuntu with complete features (e.g. no tap: support in Debian's dom0 kernel) 

I seriously dont want to use Vbox or KVM


Vbox and FreeBSD CURRENT dont play well, and i run XEN / XCP in the lab no sense in using multiple technologies
, and need to run other OS for development, so XEN virtualization
on a 8 core laptop with 16 gig memory seem the best bet for mobile development

Since it's a laptop, I actually suggest you just use 64bit OS and virtualbox. Saves lots of headache.

Currently running 64bit Kubuntu, just need XEN on it
