A Tuner should be able to provide maps for both Open Source and an AP. AP maps tend to be a bit more expensive, but it would be the same map.
You don't need
a laptop. Just buy a used netbook off of craigslist if you're concerned with price.
Opensource cost: ~ $170 (Tactrix)+ $100 (Netbook)+ $150 (Tune) = $320
AP cost: ~ $595 (AP) + $160 (Tune) = $755
As you can see, the AP route is still more expensive. You can ask the tuner to put launch control in the map as well. If you want to meet up with me later on this week, I'd be happy to show you how it works.
