                      and i will not have to make any changes with the laptop correct? The laptop will be in a different state, and I plan on moving the slingbox to a different cable box in the same house.

                          You will have to go through the Setup Assistant to reconfigure the Slingbox remotely.  As long as you're Slingbox is associated to your Sling Account, you shouldn't have any problems with remote reconfigurations of the Slingbox.

                                The only reason why the first time configurations need to be done locally is due to the router configurations.  The router needs to be configured to allow internet access to the Slingbox,  The Setup Assistant will assist you in configuring the router to allow remote accessibility.  This is the only reason why the first time configurations need to be done locally.
