I've been using laptops for years and I must admit I can't quite see the forest for the trees here. I know that I want to have ECC memory and I would love to have some kind of graphics chipset that just works without too much hassle (since I'll mostly be running a terminal in X). 
Have a look at the supported hardware page:

For ECC support, you'll probably need to use a server board and add discrete
sound and graphics cards.

These two Supermicro boards are the only ones with ECC support + sound
onboard I know of:

There is also one Asus workstation board which *may* support ECC.
