Hi there,

I'm on a Macbook Pro (late 2010). Firewire is Agere, not TI!
I really was angry when I discovered this, as I was told by the Apple sales
person that they work with TI. Apple continuously screw their customers
with ever changing chipsets, despite knowing most of their customers are
doing professional work with their macs.
Tried to run Ubuntustudio on the mac and having issues with xruns all over
the place.
Other than that Macs are wonderful machines.

Warm regards,
Moshe
