    Youll still loose the firewire advantages even if it did work with a mac...
    It was a mistake to remove the firewire port from the macbook, they should have found another way to make it different from the pro.

    I thought the HF100 used flash memory (does it even have firewire?) - can't you just take the card out and put it in a reader?

    If you've got the 15" MBP in your sig why wouldn't you stick with it? It's a fine computer and it has firewire. You want firewire for your audio, USB 2 is a step backwards.

    My advice:

    Keep the MPB for as long as you can then get a new MBP with firewire.
