That's bleak.

I bought a Mac Mini to do audio on. It's got the dreaded hda_intel chip. 

But with kernel 2.4.18 it works fine. Fine meaning: there's still some xruns, but not enough to slow me down too much.

Right now I haven't been able to get it to actually *record*, but since I'm mostly doing all-digital stuff right now it hasn't gotten in my way. Yet.

I suppose if I do any serious work I'll get one of those firewire audio external boxes like the FA-66, which aren't too expensive last I checked.
