It won't be unusable, but you should hear some improvement with an external converter and clock. It's something to consider.

As far as the PCMCIA card, I can only tell you what cards DON'T work.

I've tried a few of them, and didn't have success with any of them. I actually had to mix an entire record on the road with buffer errors every 10 seconds or so. It was a nightmare. A big problem with laptops is that a lot of them aren't very configurable from within the BIOS. You also can't swap hardware into different slots, etc. Makes it tough, IRQ conflicts are commonplace. So, it's kinda hard to tell if it's the PCMCIA card itself, or the laptop and the rest of it's components. I hope somebody has found success with this and can help you out. Good luck!
