people who have more than just a single firewire item (soundcards? external hard drives? anyone?) running at the same time, hence use the expresscard slot as a port expansion. A single FW800 port can only do so much. And what about people who use DSP accelerators such as the UAD solo... which was released just a couple of months ago? They're probably not too happy about that... unless they decide to splurge on the 17".juanpablo1313 wrote: and who in the blue hell uses ExpressCard anyway?

Don't care if it's 2009... ExpressCard IS relevant to many. Anyways that 17" is looking tempting at that base price. *stroking chin*
