I am currently looking into purchasing a new laptop, and I'll need to hook up my firewire audio interface to use in conjunction with it. As I am sure many of you know; many laptops don't come with built in firewire ports. Is getting a firewire to USB adapter (like the one's seen on ebay for example); truly a solution to this problem or will I be significantly loosing out on the speed (and other things by doing this). Also, to my best knowledge the device is firewire 1 and not firewire 2.
All help will be truly appreciated.
