Well, I’ve answered some of my own questions so far, or at least google did.

The protoneer is a pure CNC board that runs GRBL. It doesn’t have the stuff needed to run heaters and such for 3D printing. The gcode command differences between ramps and GRBL are easy to find.

Since it doesn’t have a cooling fan output, some other output would be needed for laser.

Protoneer has a true emergency stop capability. Ramps does not.

If you’re not planning on 3D printing, the protoneer looks like a nifty solution.
