    Which mac for shooting tethered in the field?

    Does anyone have any recommendations on the best/smallest (physical size) Mac for shooting tethered in the field? I am shooting H4D-40, I will not process on this computer. Also, this is what I currently use out in the field for my camera and laptop, it is not as sturdy as I would like. Anyone have any suggestions on something better?
    Thanks in advance!

    Does the H4D-40 use firewire? I think so.
    If so, a 13 inch macbook pro is the smallest with a built-in firewire port.
    I have used a macbook air with interfaces from sonnet to use the Thunderbolt port, but it adds a bunch of stuff ind is not all that elegant. Please see my posting on the subject in the Gear Garage http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=33125
