Hi there

did you think about buying a laptop from a custom shop like PCAudiolabs or
ADK?

also there is this thread

I am working on a macbook pro but pricewise it's not recommended if you
don't need OSX.

Good hunting

I'm replacing my lenovo X61s (dualcore 1.6Ghz) laptop, mostly due to a =
hard drive that's starting to fail and need some advice.

I'm having problems finding something that has the right balance betwee=
n specs and price *and* has firewire. This means I might have to replace my=
Edirol FA-66 with an USB based sound card. Will I be able to get low latan=
cy (<10ms) and reliable performance from an USB sound card? Any suggesti=
ons for a sound card (minimum 4in (2 of these should be phantom power) + 4o=

linux?

Right now I'm leaning towards a Lenovo IdeaPad U310 core i7, with 500GB=
HD + 24GB SSD, the idea would be to install the system on the SSD and have=
the data sit on the slower HD:

Any reasons this would be a bad/good choice?
