Great choice for a Mac, including the newer Macs with Intel processors. MOTU follows the Apple protocols carefully and has a history of having their drivers ready right when Apple makes a change of OS.
Perhaps the only limitation of the Ultralite, compared to its bigger brothers, is the lack of ADAT i/o. But not everyone needs that.
As you see from the close up of the back you get plenty of analog i/o and s/pdif. You have enough outputs to add a mixer or create sends in your software to FX boxes or other hardware processors.
