Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
If you mean what's a decent setup for using Illustrator then I'd recommend a laptop with a decent amount of ram and a good trackpad. If by pad you're referring to a graphics tablet like a Wacom then yes it does help but it's not essential. Illustrator is vector based so there's less traditional painting action needed like Photoshop or similar raster based packages so as long as your laptop has a decent sized trackpad you should be ok.
If you have Photoshop and want to move onto Illustrator I'd suggest getting yourself comfortable with the pen tool as once you get Illustrator this will be your primary tool.
My understanding is that if you are importing Sketchup files into Illustrator you will need Sketchup Pro. I hope this explanation helps you a little.
