Portable alternative to open synth stuff.

Portable alternative to open synth stuff.

OK so I need a portable rig. I've look at the open labs stuff and it seems the premium people pay for their stuff is so they don't have to worry about building with separate components. I'm cool in that department because I want higher quality pieces in my set up. Of course I want to spend as little dough as I have to

I'm considering getting a mac book pro with a firwire Mbox. Since it has spdif connections, I'm thinking of using my old finalizer plus for conversion.

Any suggestions/pitfalls to watch out for? (I'm thinking for alot less that a meko, I could have a portable mac solution.

What would I need to run my HD rig from the same laptop when I get home?
Is it possible to convert an old computer to an expansion chassis to be used to house the ptools cards?

OK so everyone had comments about why they would buy alternatives instead of a Meko, I'm interested in those alternatives.
