There is a complication in your question, which is how stable will the Firewire 800 port run on a MBP under Windows. I don't know the answer to this. However a quick Google search seems to indicate it will.

However, I am a music veteran from the PC world and I recently switched to a Mac (I used Cubase SX2, Cubase VST 3.1 before that and Ableton Live 4). I must admit, I cleared out my music stuff about 18 months ago and have only recently started building it up again, which I am doing around Logic and Ableton 6.

I used to read about how much better Mac were for music production and I never believed it, but quite honestly, running Ableton Live 6 and Logic on my MacBook has been an unbelievable experience and even my fastest desktops in Windows with professional sound cards were no where near as smooth and glitch free.

I think a MacBook Pro will do the trick, but it'd be such a shame to run WinXP for your music stuff. Would you ever consider a full switch?
