Most business-class Dell Precision and Latitude laptops still have 4-pin
FireWire jacks. The Latitude ATG I just bought from Dell Outlet has one.

Ian,

Thank you very much. I plan on using a laptop connected via firewire for on-location capturing and monitoring, so that is a big issue. I wish they had thought of some firewire lock or anything like that, but alas, my searches never turned up any results.
