I am STILL bound and determined to create a 160-voice laptop system that I can trust, but I can\'t afford to \'buy it, try it and throw it away\' if it fails (eBay is NOT an option!)
So if I buy a laptop at Circus City, and a Layla Laptop at Guitar Showoff, I can have a couple weeks to get it running. But the external HDD is an issue-can\'t find a place that will let me return it if the system tanks.
So is anybody using USB 2.0 for their sample drvives? Does it really give consistent thruput for GS? I can buy a HDD that has both Firewire AND USB 2.0 ports, but I can\'t find a laptop with both, so I\'m hedging my bets.
Thanks for the help.
