Firewire. mad.gif

Don't know very many mITX boards that have it built in.

This is the board that you would probably need. Next it to determine if you need a GPU.

Is the video rendering program you have GPU accelerated? How fast does it need to be able to render video and how complex of a video are we talking here?

When it comes to gaming laptops, I can tell you from personal experience that the Sager NP6110 is the best one when it comes to a balance between power and portability. You sacrifice a slight graphical edge for the portability of an 11 inch notebook. It's also one of the easiest laptops to change out harddrives and ram that I've ever used. No unscrewing a thousand tiny screws. You can simply slide the back panel off.

The only downsides this thing really has is that the 650m uses GDDR3 video memory, and the usual lack of cpu control without software and nvidia optimus crap that make gaming laptops a pain in the ass. And **** battery, but they all have that.

There's a guy named Prema that made a custom BIOS for this specific laptop to give the user a lot more control and fix some of these issues.

All in all, you can't go wrong with this thing.
