I think it would be better for you to get a mini ITX PC instead, because I don't think laptops were designed to be running overnight.

Well is there any need to take the computer around with you? If not I'd go with a mini-ITX; that way you'll have more options when building.

Very few mini-ITX motherboards have PCI slots (let alone PCI-E), they nearly all have integrated graphics.

Er, no it doesn't. The only kind of slot I can see are RAM slots. And besides, it's Ion, which is nVidia's new integrated chip.
