I'm shopping for some firewire toys (er... accessories) for my 51m and I notice that not all firewire ports support powered devices. Boo! By the looks of it Alienware chose a 4 pin port rather than a 6 pin, so I will not be able to power devices over the firewire cable where supported. What a drag. Is this assumption correct? This is the only firewire port I've ever seen in person, so I'm hoping I'm wrong, but I only see 4 conductors in there...
