Don't hold your breath on the mini-me getting Firewire. They keep saying 3 months down the road, and yet a year has passed now. Most recent report was early '06. We'll see. They say they've been working on Firewire for their other units and that the mini-me and mini-dac are next in line. The Mini-me has very good preamps and excellent conversion. You cannot do greater than 48kHz through the USB.
You might want to consider the MOTU Traveler. I just got one, and it so far has been pretty good. Comparable to the Mackie, but with more digital options. Definitely portable. Powers off my desktop, but my laptop is only 4 pin. Has a power supply if you need to. The Halo looks like a good option.
