I know everyone is trying to get smaller and lighter, but has anyone
tried recording high-end stuff straight to the laptop using any of the
nice field mic preamps out there? Batteries and all that are still a
problem, but it's got to be easier than a Nagra.

It could be cheaper too when you think that you might already be using
a laptop and the mic pre/converter might be good enough to double up
for studio use. I'd heard that the Apogee was a little dodgy, but what
about the others, like the SoundDevices?

Or if you're going cheap and light, has anyone tried using the Sony Hi-MD?

Anyone know anything yet?
