USB/laptop interface reco's?

I've got an HP dv6-1122us laptop which I intend to use for mixing, maybe some vocal tracking. Somehow I managed not to notice that there's no firewire port when I bought it (going on what I thought was an informed recommendation), so I will have to find a small USB interface that will work with 64-bit Windows 7.
So far I've been going to each manufacturer's website and looking at their drivers, but if any of you have recommendations it will speed up the process. I've read the related threads here and understand I should have chosen my laptop more carefully, but I'm stuck with it now.

Here's the criteria:
1. No M-Audio (Delta card was crashing my other system for months), no Tascam.
2. $300 and under
3. 64-bit Windows 7 compatible
4. MIDI in/out

Looks like Cakewalk's products have all the specs I need, so let me throw out a couple of models and see if anyone has experience with them:
UA-4FX and UA-25.

The only feature I can see on the UA-25 that would make it cost $40 more than the other one is digital audio in/out, which I don't need.

So based on the info I've got right now, the UA-4FX is what I'd lean towards.
Anyone love or hate the unit? How stable are Cakewalk's drivers?

Thanks for any feedback.
