    New macbook only has 1 audio port

    So i just picked up a new macbook pro 13 inch and noticed it only has 1 audio port on it. Can i get some sort of splitter so i can do line in and line out from it????

    or could i get some sort of USB device to do the work ?

    There are several USB External Audio Cards out there.

    Here's the one I have used with success: Soundblaster X-Fi Pro USB

    Here is another option you could try: http://amzn.to/100ot8l

    I had a headphone jack break on a laptop and it saved me a bunch of money rather than having to get the laptop repaired.

    Imic is ok. I had to send one back. There are a bunch of them and they all do the same thing. Spend as little as you can. there really isnt a big difference between the 5 dollar usb device and the 30 dollar one.

    Cost does matter. I found these little units to be the best I've used so far. http://goo.gl/imwIc

    I also have some $15 units from StarTech and, well, I use them because I didn't have anything else at the time.

    The one I recommended is an external soundcard and does quite well. If you are looking for an external card then an option like that is the way to go. If you are looking for a solution to use both connections in the one provided port and use the internal soundcard, then it sounds like some of the other cheaper offerings are definitely the way to go.
