I generally use my Dell desktop, but occasionally my wife's HP laptop gets the duty, and both of them have just the onboard audio.

I don't know if it's specific to that set-up, or if it also applies equally to machines with separate audio cards, but be sure to keep an eye on your audio settings ("playback/recording properties") so if you're playing music or whatever simultaneously that it doesn't go out with your scanner feed. Been there done that. :roll:
