Choose any model with a fast cpu, plenty of memory and a not too small hard disk.
But it depends on your cases. A high-end laptop might be oversized when only running small testcases with 1000 cells. Or it might be overloaded when you try to run hughe cases with 100 million cells.

And to be honest, you will get more power for your bucks when a workstation or even just an off-the-shelf desktop would also be an option.
