In general a solid top will sound better than a laminate, but obviously there are exceptions to the rule - a good guitar is a good guitar. I've had plenty of laminate guitars which sounded great to my ears.
Unless it's something you plan to play for the rest of your guitar playing career I'd say it doesn't really matter. Try the guitar, if you dig it buy it. You can always hone your skills and then buy something more appropriate to what you need later on when your style has matured and you know exactly what you need.
Less time worrying about the small details, more time playing!
