The reason I prefer a laptop isn't just that I can hook up any external
HDD to it, but with Adobe OnLocation it also serves as a calibrated
field monitor, waveform monitor, vectorscope, audio spectrum analyzer,
etc. Plus, I can review and organize clips right as I record them.
I understand the usefulness of the FireStore, but given its limited
features I think it's seriously overpriced, especially since most people
already own a laptop - which, incidentally, runs off a rechargeable
battery just like the FS.
But to each his or her solution.
