See your point. I use both mac and pc laptops and the ability to
natively power up a firewire interface is one of the things I like
best with the mac.
This is a very nice feature! I just purchase a macbook and a Moto 8pre and love that it boots up immediately. I am still getting use to my first Mac but with 2gig of ram and a 160 hd I should be able to have some fun. I went to the Native Instrument page which gave me some tips on setup for recording which I still have not done....... will tonight. I may need some pointers and will need to search the archive for recommendations as I know there have been many discussions and with my new reading glasses I feel like a kid again....
