I am very sorry for misinterpreting the RME's laptop comparison table
(http://www.rme-audio.com/images/techinfo/hdsp/testtabe.pdf). I was
guessing higher minimal latency was a bad thing. And on one of the linux
on laptop pages I found a statement about O2 Micro not being the good
choice. But it might be related to the fact they don't want to release
specs for the SmartCard reader. Other than that I don't have any
arguments against O2 Micro.

I can't locate anything bad that was said about O2 Micro. Sorry to
disappoint you. ;)

It was not as much of a statement as it was an inquiry to check what's
going on in this field.  

Thanks and take care,
