New 17 in. MacBook Pro on its way.

Good evening all:
I have a new MacBook Pro 17 inch that will be heading my way in a few days. This is certainly a step up from my current 17in MBP that is 3 years old. I was wondering if any of you have this newer machine and how you interface it with the EX1 camera, if you can and also how you off load your cards into the computer.
I appreciate your input.

I use the card slot on the left side of the MBP and copy the files with Sony's Clip Browser. It works quite well. The only random glitch I've experienced came when I had my iPod Shuffle plugged in at the same time and Clip Browser wouldn't load; thankfully, one of the members here straightened things out.

forunately you ordered the 17" instead of the 15". The 17 still has an express card slot. it also has a firewire 800 you can use for the external hard drive you can burn to.

If you use the SDHC adaptors though, the new 15" and 13" now have SDHC slots. True the Express slot is more broadly useful (I have 2008 15" with Express slot) but when doing location shoots, smaller is better. I do NOT want to lug a 17" laptop to a shoot. Big laptops on location shoots present too many risks especially when doing "one man band" work. In fact the reason I used SDHC is that I can have enough to NEVER offload during a location shoot which I found very risky when I was using SxS.
