>> I'm not the original poster. My 5-year-old low-budget Toshiba laptop came
Thanks for the laugh! When I bought my laptop NEW it wasn't a mid or
high end laptop! In fact, I think it had been discontinued that year. ;-)

Vendors continue to chase cheapness. I wouldn't characterize that as
intentional "murder" of Firewire. My laptop has a PS/2 mouse port, for
instance. Now laptops don't come with enough USB ports for me to plug in
mouse, keyboard, MIDI and USB soundcard ...
Outside of Toshiba or Asus EEEPc, I don't recommend cheap or "budget"
authenticity, honesty, community
