You have limited data on your website about a few computers with express card slots that aren't made anymore

Give us a workable solution!

How do I find a good laptop at a reasonable (read cheap!) price to connect with my presonus - or is it turning into a lemon??

[UPDATE] With the recent release of USB-C with Thunderbolt on PC Laptops, you can acquire a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter from StarTech and use the Thunderbolt 2 to 1394 adapter from Apple which will give you 1394 support on your Windows Laptop. This has not worked for everyone, however since most 1394 enabled PC Laptops are all out of production, this is the best option as of Mid-2017.
