But once you get past the P-3 class machines, they get to be rare. For that matter, finding a laptop with a PS/2 port is getting hard to find as well. I have sitting here a Thinkpad I1500 class machine that Has 1 serial, 1 parallel, 1 USB, 1 PS/2, and 1 VGA port, as well as a modem connection. Then again, it also has both a 3-1/2" floppy and a CD-ROM drive. (Both drives in the machine at the same time.) When was the last time you saw a laptop with a floppy drive?
