My HP notebook has finally packed up. Does anybody know witch notebook/laptop comes with a serial port. The usb-serial adapters are not really reliable and have seen lots of complaints about them. Have seen on the net on a forum that Dell have one, so I phoned and that model is not available in SA. Phoned ASUS the tech did not even know what a serial port was, but the 2 that have serial ports cost a arm and a leg. Phoned HP they gave me the models with ports but they are not sold anymore. What I have found is that the sales and tech guys don't know much about their products. The other thing is does anybody have any contacts with Tarsus or Axis.
