I appreciate your position, but I think you missed the point a bit. I 
don't disagree that PCI audio solutions afford much greater throughput, 
but I (and the original poster) are using laptops. And while I can't 
speak for the original poster, in my case, simplicity and portability 
are important factors. I'm not trying to do 24-track recording with a 
laptop. For projects involving 4 tracks or less, I have found USB and 
Firewire 400 interfaces to be adequate. Anything more than that, and I 
would certainly move up to a desktop solution as you suggested.
