Probably sacriledge round here, but did you consider a macintosh? There are loads of snd hand Powerbooks out there that would suit you down to the ground.

Intel Core Duo, and a decent external interface such as the M-Audio Firewire one. Don't know the lengths (and hence the sizes) of the material you plan to manipulate, but obviously a hard disk that is big enough for you would be good.

Laptop onboard sound is pretty atrocious, even worse than desktop onboard - if that was even possible. I hear much more hums, clicks and high pitched noise through laptop earphone jacks.

I've got pretty good ears, and my apple laptops sound pretty good to me. The IBM's are much worse.
