    Connecting two laptops
    Hi,

    I recently bought the new retina MBP and bought a firewire-thunderbolt adaptor with it for use with an audio interface. Annoyingly, I left the connector at university so we've had to resort to using my old, cripplingly underpowered '09 MBP simply because it has firewire.

    I was wondering if there's any way of connecting my old laptop to my new one so that I can use just the firewire port on my old one but use the retina as the actual computer?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Wouldn't it be simpler to just order a new FW-TB adapter? It's $29, which I would call trivially inexpensive.

    Yep, I'm heading out tonight to get one but I was just wondering if there was something that could be done for today since it's day 1 of recording

    Oh, sorry, didn't understand you.

    No, there's not really another option for what you wanted to do.
