Hi there,
I'm gonna purchase a laptop pretty soon and the final thing I need to know before I buy the laptop I had in mind is if there are any special things a laptop needs to be able to run a Toneport?
And what about the sound card, is that important? Cos it's something like an Intel High Definition Audio or something, which is onboard sound I think...

Toneport runs as an external soundcard so it works fine. I have my speakers plugged into the headphone jack and the recording monitoring also comes out there too.

A word of warning: recording causes laptops to heat up pretty quickly so its best to prop the back up for ventilation. Otherwise i've had no problems running on my HP.
