I need a netbook with 2 things:
1) 7200RPM HDD
2) IEEE1394 firewire port (whether onboard or added via pcie somehow)

Is there a netbook out there that meets these specs? I've been searching and I'm not sure it exists... :( 
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm afraid that you're wrong for now - it isn't exist, as I know.

You will not find a 7200rpm hdd in any netbook. Manufactures want to keep the price/power draw low . So they went for a 5400rpm drive instead. BUT there are plenty of aftermarket HDDs you can pick up that you can swap out that are 7200rpm.

you wont find a fire wire port on a netbook as of right now. Netbooks are all made of the same stuff.

You either have to take the bandwidth blow and switch back to usb or buy a laptop
