I've got a tiny (7") monitor and tiny (12") keyboard
that I use to troubleshoot headless machines without
having to deal with lugging a big monitor around.

However, some of the things that I need to talk to
have serial consoles et ilk.  So far, I've been
using a small (10") laptop running a terminal emulator
to do this.

But, the laptop is so small that it needs a dock-ish
add-on to make the serial port available!  This gets

Does anyone make a "netbook" type device *with* a genuine
serial port?  (USB serial ports tend not to be 100.00%
compatible with *real* serial ports)
