Me to I want to buy a reliable laptop on autumn for audio production and projects. Now I have an USB audio card (Edirol UA-25EX), but in the future I want to migrate or complement with a firewire audio card. I read something about the firewire chip of DELL computers (RICOH) having problems with audio cards. In this case, DELL will be discarded. Could someone confirm this issue? For me having a nice firewire configuration is more critical than have a nice video card.

Thanks in advance,
