I have a lot of hardware to set up for my live shows. Now I'm thinking it might just be easier to run out of the built in. Barring latency issues, are there serious performance or sonic drawbacks to this in a live situation?

My firewire 410 died before I played a show a while back (well kept cutting in and out so I didn't want to risk it)
I would be concerned with wearing out the out jack on your mac book but if you have apple care then ware away. also those 1/8'' to RCA will ware out too.

Your main concern most likely is the fact that you will loose your headphone jack...
