I've been looking for a new laptop (well, not necesarily NEW). It's good
to know the D620 has a serial port. I looked at some of the refurb
prices at the Dell site but didn't delve heavily into what features it had.
The cheapest one I saw yesterday at the Dell site was about $770.
By the way, we bought an Inspiron at work a few years ago. I forget the
model but it had a cartridge slot for either a CD drive or floppy drive.
You couldn't use both at once. It made for a real pain in the tuchis to
try to install an operating system on it on an un-partitioned,
unformatted hard drive.
