Art_usbmicropre_250Most notebooks and Tablet PCs produced today are more than capable enough to be used as complete desktop replacements.  The availability of USB and firewire peripherals makes it a snap to add additional hardware functionality and still maintain a mobile form factor.  Many people add external audio interfaces so they can hook good speakers up to the mobile device and produce really high quality sound so they can forever ban the tinny sound coming from the small internal speakers most portables use.  I ran across this article that looks at several high-end USB and firewire audio boxes and gives an overview of each one.  I had no idea how many quality (read expensive) options are available.  Cool stuff.

For portability and ease of use, one of the best bargains is the M-Audio Transit (here’s a link to all M-Audio mobile interfaces http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=products.list&ID=mobileinterfaces)
