Looking for a better internal soundcard

I have a Toshiba Satellite L550, for the moment I run FL Studio 10 on it and use an Akai MPK 25. The standard sound card is the Microsoft High-End Audio Device, and so far when I combine it with Asio4All it sounds ok, but I want to step up my mixes and I´ll need a professional soundcard for that. I only have two USB ports though and I don´t think I´ll be recording instruments or vocals anytime soon so I guess I´ll go with an internal one. Can anyone recommend me one for about 100€?

PS I´m not sure if this is the right forum, sorry mods in case it isn´t

There are internal ones from for example digigram (vxpocket line of products). I have one and it's great with balanced ins and out, headphone amp, even timecode.

Just that you'd have to have a laptop with a new PCMCIA express slot and buy an equivalent new card. (I have the older type II)

Adk sells computers with the modern PCMCIA express slot for example

Hmm, currently my budget won't allow me to get a new laptop, though I'll look into those laptops... thanks for the info!

This is my Digigram vxPocket v2. I got it off eBay for around 200$ used some years ago.
New ones cost a lot.

Anyway, if you dont have a slot like this one or the new express slot, just get one of the newer USB interfaces

Gear interested
 

I use my VXpocket mainly for playback and venue calibration.
I have finally decided to let go of my old laptop which means I cannot use this card anymore. I have it up on ebay for a $100 if anyone’s interested.

If any of you already have the VXpocket I recommend contacting Digigram since they have updated VX drivers that have been released are not yet on posted their website (its great that they are still supporting the product)
