Any good I7/I5 laptops with firewire?

I was thinking of replacing my 8 year old Dell with a new I7 or I5 laptop. However, firewire ports on today's models are almost impossible to find. Only one I found was Sony, and I won't go into details, but no Sony here.

Is there anyone who has found a current model I5 or I7 laptop with firewire? Both my outboard converters as well as my video streams require firewire.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio, i7, 4G Ram, 18" Display. I edit audio and AVCHD video on it. Nice laptop but of course, it is big and heavy. That doesn't bother me at all, though.

Thanks, definately staying in the PC camp.... all my software, hardware both mobile and in the studio is PC, so I'm not changing for a laptop.

Will have to check out the Toshiba. Funny that firewire is starting to disappear as it is still used for audio/video quite a bit.

What audio interface do you use?
