    my Compaq nc6000 died need replacement

    My Compaq NC6000 died yesterday (looks like motherboard problem) so I am looking for a new laptop but there does seem to be any made now with a serial port which is what I use quite a lot,unless anyone knows of any.Looks like I will have to keep a look out at a certain auction site and see if I can get another NC6000 and I could just change the hard drive.

    Regards,
    Bonehead

    You'll need to buy a Belkin USB to Serial Adapter.

    a lot of those compaq and hp laptops have that motherboard failure trouble

    so might be worth looking at alternative makes as well

    and the usb to serial port adapter or a port replicator may also come in handy for the serial port side
