Lives for gear
For a laptop you can get a Firewire-based soundcard like the RME Fireface 800 or the MOTU Traveller. The benefits of using a professional sound card like one of these include:

---higher quality sound
---lower latency when recording and playing back
---better connectivity (XLR, SPDIF, etc.)
---onboard mic pres (in some cases, such as the two cards I mentioned)
---multiple simultaneous inputs and outputs
