I think it looks excellent by the specifications! The only situation  
I can think of that might prevent you from buying it is if you need  
good quality pre amps on the analog inputs. And I'm not sure PCMCIA  
is the most future proof system, but you should be in a situation  
better suited for knowing about that?

I recently was forced to upgrade my interfaces (cardbus breaking down  
two days before leaving for an eight days tour) and I went for the  
RME FireFace 400 because I need high quality pre amps when playing  
wind instruments acoustically. For my second laptop I only need  
digital output so I went for a Echo FW2 for that one. Had to trade in  
a lot of old gear and I'm now finding myself with an empty rack but  
great small laptop audio interfaces. I decided to live on water and  
porridge over the summer in favor to not trading in my old EDP  
though ;-))
