Hi Aaron yes but if you wander into Wal Mart and look at their new home and laptop computers you will see no serial ports. You can buy a USB to serial device for $20 that works sort of. Mine will do most things but not what I wanted.

There are problems with using USB to RS232 serial converters.
I use RS232 to communicate with several embedded systems I have

USB ain't UNIVERSAL.
