  • Windows laptops w/ Firewire/Expresscard

    It's a big topic, but I haven't found an answer yet. Are there any good Windows laptops that offer good Expresscard slots, or better yet, offer Firewire 400/800 built in, that would work with most studio/live gear?

      I'd rather get a Macbook, but money is tight.

        Get a HP ProBook 4530 or 4540 and you can run Mac OS on it easily, at 1/3rd the cost of a MacBook Pro!

        Very easy to set it to dual boot with Windows too.

          Just in case you are still looking for a solution or some one else might benefit, I recently bought an ASUS G55VW that has a Thunderbolt port. (Yes, thunderbolt.) I also have a Saffire 24 Pro DSP that I have connected to the TB port via an Apple firewire to thunderbolt adapter and it works flawlessly. Check it out.

          Kind regards,
