Laptop Serial Port



As most laptop/notebook computers do not have a serial port available, a serial port can be added to the notebook using an ExpressCard or CardBus adapter, or a USB serial adapter. These serial adapters in turn offer connectivity with many serial based peripherals, such as modems, GPS receivers, serial printers, and PDAs.
