As you can see from my earlier contribution to this, (in the quote above) these problems are not just laptop based - so let's not go off target here - it's not all about the hardware - As my G5 use shows. I'm thinking its Protools!
Exactly the same conclusion I was getting at, as the Mbox works fine with Logic Express and PT under OS 9, but put it in OS X and walla, errors a plenty.

Also, people keep posting happy results with 30 tracks playback etc. but they are not mentioning errors whilst recording, and I believe that is the biggest problem encountered.......well definitely for me anyway. I can playback fine, its just recording thats the bitch.

Still no response from Digi?

hello -
i DO NOT wanna open my mouth to the devil but:
i just got a G5 1.8 single with 768 Ram and an Mbox with protools 6.7 for mixing an album i finished recording on a TDM system and on my EX 001system(G4 1.25 ) and i am sorry to say the Mbox licks ass !!!usb or not usb i run all 32tracks and more then 40!!! plugins including 3 reverbs - amplitube and other waves plugs with not alittle hassle (tok tok tok) the buffer is on 1024 but who cares... i have no latency with mixing - i know it is not the best for recording but it does 5 times better then my late G4 001 system - really
it is my second Mbox i had another one 3 years ago when i moved to france with a Ibook G3 700mhz and 640ram ,and it wored wonderfully - 32tracks and allot of plugs - it worked slow and the screen was a bit delayed but it worked - so after reading all those post i must disagree and say that i have (and again TOK TOK TOK) a very good experiance with my Mbox

OK...
The iBook 12.1" 1.2Ghz is now supported:

However still @ 256Samples this machine is impossible to work with.

I really consider switching to a m-audio firewire solution (hope they have bus-powered thing) to get better performance...
