Just as i posted i saw there were a few simular threads already, but this is deffinitly a new topic. What are you lap top producers useing for sound cards? As a mac book (nonpro) user there ain't much i could do to upgrade. I know i don't really have to because ilm going to be doing dance on my laptop with low latency programs and smaller audio files. But soon I will produce rap on my buddies desktop PC with a fancy M-Audio card and an M-Box and Protools. Its odd how Macs are so common in the music industry but Apple doesn't have a primo upgrade or anything for it. haha are those little usb cards any good? Maybe i could smash this into the CD drive? lol I think it's all hype and competition that makes me think i need to upgrade; I know that I don't need to and it would be ridiculously hard. haha I'm not looking for specific answers, just a good discussion regarding laptop sound cards.
