"Distortion with a laptop"

The way big majority of Windows laptops have a Mic-In that's mono, not stereo and produces distortion if you try to plug anything other than a microphone into it. For this, I recommend the Behringer UCA202 stereo audio adapter or equivalent.

There is a version of this that has a phonograph amplifier built-in so if you're transferring vinyl, there are no extra steps in the process. UFO-202.
