    Within the next 2 weeks i plan on purchasing a Lacie Rugged hard drive for my laptop. Ive been doing a little research about a firewire 800 card since my version of the mbp doesn't have it. Does anyone know of a good deal on one? The link below seems to be the only one I can find. IS $90 worth it? or should i try to find another card?

    I don't think it's really worth bothering with if you're just using a single 2.5" LaCie drive, even with the 7200rpm version. Depends what you're planning on using the drive for though, it may be better to go for eSATA.
