Hair Removal in Olive Skin
I have had fabulous results with the Gentle Yag laser. It is painless and efficient. I would be cautious about who performs your laser hair removal. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best results.

The 755nm can treat both fine and coarse hairs and is a little less painful than the lasers with longer wavelength, whose longer beams penetrate more deeply. The 910 and 1064 are great with coarse hairs but not as effective, in my experience or according to the physics of their wavelengths, with fine hairs. The 1064nm is best for very dark skin types (V or VI) such as darker African-American skin types. None can be used in tanned skin.
So, if you have fine as well as coarse hairs, I would go with the Alex. Otherwise, they will all work and the pain issue should not be a major factor especially if topical anesthetics are applied first. Find a doctor you trust and go from there!
