I should have a Toshiba Satellite 6100 in the next few days.


[edit] it my take a little bit linger for my folks to finish with it. They are less keen to upgrade today then they were two days ago.

Ya that sounds fine. It has a serial connection?

why serial? megasquirt maybe?

if so, I used a specific brand of usb to serial converter, and changed a few settings, and voila.

good luck with your search.

Yeah its for megasquirt. There is one adapter that i no will work but the shipping is more than the adapter.
And i need a laptop for it anyways.
