USB to serial ports don't with alot of equipment. I have a toshiba tecra core 2 duo from 2010 with a native serial port.. but it doesn't look like Toshiba make them anymore. My co worker has a new HP elite book and it has a native serial port. Also I've seen new Fujitzu laptops with serial ports.

Solution for missing native serial port on newer PCs...
I have had the same issue for years... new laptops don't have native serial ports and the USB to Serial (DB9) converters either don't work or are unstable. I have switched to PCMCIA and ExpressCard serial adapters with 100% success. I have single, double, and quad-port cards (PCMCIA, ExpressCard, PCMCIA, respectively) and since they share native bus architectures, they function exactly like standard COM ports. You can even modify the COM addresses to match required port assignments. I log data from multiple instruments at various baud rates into a singe computer for 10-12 hours a day with zero dropped data. I think all of my adapters are Quatech brand but I suspect that any good manufacturer would work. Make sure you have DB9 gender benders and null modem connections at the ready to complete your connections. It also helps to have some "Y" splitters handy to provide redundant backup or data transfer/feedback between instruments.
