Hi Kent,

Dell Latitude laptops still come with serial ports, like the D630.

Most new laptops don't come with Serial Ports, and some not even a
PCMCIA slot.

I am looking for a fast, new laptop (VISTA), (not a MAC) that has a
built-in SERIAL Port.

I don't want to use a USB to Serial adaptors and such. Would like a
laptop, with a built-in serial port, also not have to add a port
replicator or docking station to get it.

So far, I have only found Toshiba Tecra A9 and M9's and DELL (business)
D830s with a built-in serial port.

Any body know of another mainstream laptop with serial ports so I can
run my serial port stuff, such as APRS?

Thanks,
Kent
