Windows 7: Requesting advice for Laptop...

Requesting advice for Laptop...

Hey everyone,

I need some advice. A friend of mine is looking for a laptop that has a built in FireWire port (and, if possible - an expansion slot) I'm aware FireWire is an outdated form of transfer but to do what we need, this is the only solution. Can anyone recommend any websites or link to a direct page that would have such a laptop?

The laptop needs to be as fast as possible for a reasonable price.

Thank you in advance!
