I doubt you'll have much sucess finding a Core2Duo laptop with a serial port built in these days. Your best bet is to find yourself a laptop meeting the specs you describe (I'd recommend a Dell Vostro, even if only because of the quality of their 3yr next business day warranty), and fit it with an RS232 Express Card. There's no shortage on them on ]eBay , and they sell for as little as a tenner.

I have this one for sale:

I'd take £175

Mr greedy thats not core 2 duo nor does it have my required 2gb ram, nor does it have a webcam, nor does it have a serial port. Its far below the spec im using right now which is a dell, 2gb ram, 160gb hdd, 1.8ghz core 2 duo.

I really really need the spec i mentioned above.

Not sure if they will work with what i want to do with it. Ive tried a usb to serial adaptor with no luck. I might need a laptop with the serial built in. Thanks for your input though.
