I used a Focuserite 2i2 for quite a while and it worked out of the box 
without major problems. One thing I did notice with USB audio devices in 
general is that on laptops they seem to behave differently among 
different USB ports (for example on this machine one port seems to be 
very stable and never gives problems compared to the other two - 
incidentally it is on the opposite side, but I don't think this would 
really make a difference :)
