Actually this should _really_ push you for firewire. Because:
USB1 only has bandwidth for four channels. Two in and two out and the bus is 
filled up. And don't even think about adding another device to that bus (and be 
aware of the hubs already builtin the computer).
On Firewire the bandwidths will be reserved, so no matter how many devices you 
connect, (up to the total limit) all devices will get the needed bandwidth. 
And firewire is a network, not a master-slave connection. So you don't need 
more than one firewire connector on your laptop, simply daisy-chain all the 
devices. Additional advantage: then they can all use the firewore-clock as 
reference-clock which makes multiple audio-fw-devices act as one big (sample-
synced!) audio device.

And a firewire-card for a pc is as cheap as a good firewire cable...

Have fun,
