Re: Serial ports on laptops
Yup, USB is about all you can do anymore. My new system doesn't have seral on it at all(not even mobo headers), and neither does my laptop. It's just such a slow connection, most people are doing away with it.
Sometimes you can find USB versions of such cables. I know I have one for my cell phone with simply emulates the come port.

They get me from 0 to 1...
