Just as the topic states. I am involved in a live recording setup that uses pro tools, digi 002 and an octopre connected via firewire. It runs on a G5 powermac, which isn't mine so I don't know too much about it but it records 14 tracks in pro tools without skipping a beat. I currently own a unibody 2.4 macbook that is really great but have ever so slowly begun to regret the purchase simply due to the lack of firewire. I have no need for FW now but I know I will run into it some time in the future. The reason I ask this question is that I am thinking of selling my unibody macbook and buying one of the new white macbooks simply for the firewire access, as in the future I may need to use it as a replacement for the recording setup if ever the powermac plays up. So would the 2.0 white macbook run just as well to a G5 powermac (lets just say the fastest powermac available), which would make the switch to the white MB a good choice, or will the MB struggle with tasks the powermac is used for (or similar) Cheers.
