Ok, I've actually posted this up on a separate thread...
Apple literally invented Firewire (and even won an Academy Award for it too.)

Knowing that, if Apple picked a "cheaper" chipset, I'm pretty sure the new one meets Firewire's requirements 101%. It's almost always 3rd party hardware makers that made products that are not standard compliant. I know there's lots of hula with 10.5.2/3 breaking lots of pro audio equipments, and you probably know by now the manufacturers are scrambling to fix their products, not Apple.

My point is, if you need a Mac for its superior OS, just buy it and stop worrying about cheap chipset.
