CD burning in a computer vs. stand alone

I am mixing on an analog console. Is it better sonically to master to
a stand alone CD burner (masterlink, hhb, etc.), via a good a/d
converter or go into the computer and burn there (I have a titanium
laptop with an internal maxtor burner). And does it make any
difference if you are using firewire or usb into the computer? Many of
the decent converters do not seem to have firewire as an option--
lucid, cranesong hedd, apogee, and only a few have usb like the new
apogee mini-me. I don't need mic pre's and multiple channels of a/d.
Any recommendations? Thanks for any help.
