I have one of the newest D620's (we are a preferred customer of Dells 
(Greater that 100k computers purchased annually)). Our mandate 
requires 3 years full support with our image. The D620 has ONE serial 
port. - NO - Printer port!!!! (Yes I can no longer use my eprom programmer!!)

Great laptop so far (purchased this batch in April of last year with 
May deployment).
