What do you consider faulty?

That butterfly keyboard or something else?

I know Louis Rossmann (see the web) has a lot of models he thinks have design defects but I can't list them all here. Used might be cheaper but with no warranty you better research that model and see if Louis mentions it and why.

Yes, Apple claims they fixed that keyboard but still so many failures.

PS. As to the topic title question, almost all models can run Virtual Box or something else. But I can't know if you meant something other than "can I" so let's get some clarification here.

Re: faulty MacBook

If a refurbished one comes from a shop you trust, has the hardware specifications (like CPU, RAM, SSD, screen) you need, comes with at least one year warranty and runs OK, I'd say can't be faulty,
