Buying a new laptop for work


Recommended Posts

Guys, I'm a IT professional here in the DC Metro area. My Dell D620 finally died, loved that laptop, and I'm looking for a replacement. Having a hard time finding anything that has serial ports anymore. I use my com port daily for router and switch configuration. Really do not want to get a USB/COM adapter.

Any suggestions? Would like to stick with the brand names, HP, IBM or DELL. Thanks.

If you look at Latitudes on the Dell website, they list serial ports on the tech specs. This was from the E5510:


Network connector (RJ-45)

Optional Modem connector (RJ-11)

USB 2.0 (4)

Serial port

Microphone jack, Headphone/speaker out

IEEE 1394

3-in-1 card reader, 34 mm ExpressCard, SmartCard Reader, or Type I/II PCMCIA (PC Card) reader options Docking Connector



looking back at the Dell website, there are a lot better laptops with serial ports. I knew the latitude had one because I just saw one this week.
