    Hi

    This is my first post on here so please be kind. Sorry if this thread is in the wrong forum as well. I'm buying a 17" MacBook Pro next month, hopefully with Leopard installed, and am trying to find out what additional hardware I can purchase for it. Here's what I would like to know:

    - What ExpressCards are available which could add HSDPA or 3G capabilites to the MacBook Pro as I'll be on the go alot.
    - What other types of ExpressCards are available including ExpressCards for audio (i.e. sound cards).
    - What audio hardware/software I can get for the best sound quality possible (through headphones and connection to a hi-fi/amp and speakers) and for audio creation and editing.

    Many thanks
    Sam

    Who's your cell carrier? I know for sure verizon has expresscard adapters for their broadband over here in the US, but i'm sure all the others over there do too.


    There isn't a HUGE assortment of expresscard peripherals yet, but there are definitely things like card readers. Try doing a google search; i found one DSP audio expresscard, but i'm not too familiar with that stuff. Again, expresscard is still kind of new...

    At last, someone has replied! Thank pianos! I live in the United Kingdom so we have O2, Orange, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Three. Yeah it is sorta new and it's a bit of a grey area which I think need to be brought into the open because I'm sure there are quite a few ExpressCards now. Anyone else know info?

    Most UK carriers offer portable modems for laptops (T-Mobile) I'm not sure if this is what you were meaning but its worth a look

    Well that kinda thing but I really mean in ExpressCard format because there are few HSDPA/3G ExpressCards floating about.
