So if you go laptop, you might want to verify how much RAM is in a thing and what the max is and see if you need to buy some immediately.

Completely out-of-date advice. Replacing laptop RAM is now a user-enabled feature, and will probably take you all of 15-20 minutes. Even the hard drive, once a PITA, takes only a few mins more. There are step-by-step online guides for each MBP model.
