Partimage will do what you need it too.

However there are 2 points to take into consideration when using

1: You need a newer version of partimage than the one in Ubuntu Hardy
and it needs to be on both systems.  (I recommend system rescue cd which
is most cli but part gui)
2: You will need the laptop to be wired into the network for partimage
to work.

After say that if you goto http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page it tells
you how to setup partimage to do just what you want.
