Connect USB on a mac

I was thinking about getting a new Macbook. While I am pissed apple is not including FW I am hopeful that I can still connect the HVX200a to the laptop via USB. Possible? How?

Thanks!!

On the spec sheet is says it connects to a PC via USB and a Mac via Firewire. I want to know if you can download the cards using USB on an a mac. Thanks

Yes, you can download cards. You won't be able to playout or preview footage via USB, which is why I asked. In USB mode, you can also write back to P2 cards if you need it.

You can also get yourself a MacBook Pro and gain a fw port. The MacBook Pro will be better suited for editing.

Yeah a MacBook is really underpowered and understaffed in the ports department. I'd get the MacBook Pro. Otherwise you'll seeing why USB is so sllooooow on the Mac.
