I didn't liked the POD sound either! I'm using a Johnson but I think these 
are not available anymore.
I choose this one mainly for 2 reasons: it sounded as good for bass than 
for 
guitar and the accouistic simulation was almost convincing.

take care of one thing: the signal path should end with the looper for 
maximum flexibility.
Some amps with all the effects included are great but if there is no 
effect 
loop, you are stuck.
Same goes for the laptop. Do you plan to put it in the send of your mixer? 
Or perhaps just using a guitar and the laptop: guitar > virtual FX > 
virtul 
amp > virtual looper > PA.
