Portable laptop pc interface: Motu Microbook? ESI UGM96? Audio Interfaces

Portable laptop pc interface: Motu Microbook? ESI UGM96?

Here's another interface question. I have an E-MU 0404 connected to my desktop/monitors but I need something portable (small and bus powered) to take around with my laptop (playing guitar through virtual amps, messing around itb, etc).

Have anybody used any of those mentioned above? Anything else?

Apogee One would be good but it's a PC - no Firewire, should be USB, Win7 x64 compatible with stable drivers.
Would be great to get some good quality quiet Hi-Z input and low latency (soft limiter as in 0404?).
Will be used mostly with headphones or home 2.1 system, so enough gain on headphone out and 1/8 line out would be a plus, while balanced mains ain't that important...

MOTU Microbook looks very good on paper for such requirements (and universal overall), but I couldn't find any reviews how good it really is...
(Yep, Babyface, I know, but not this time)
