You won't get the exact same install from Mac to Mac unless all Macs are the same. The MBP needs drivers for the ambient light sensor, trackpad and backlit keyboard. Other drivers vary between the iMac and the MBP. One size does not fit all.

I can't answer about the iMac but I'm sure the MBP will have the safe sleep image file created (in /var/vm) This is the same size as your ram, so if you have 4 gig of ram, you'll have a 4gig+ file.
