Default Any laptops with a Serial port?

Do they even make laptops with a serial port anymore? I need one for my Wideband O2 on my car. The Serial - USB interfaces can interfere with data transfer occasionally, so if I can get a laptop with a serial port, that would be the best bet.

I wanted an i5, but oh well... An AMD Quad will do.

I was about to pull the trigger on a Dell XPS 17. Was trying to find ways I can get the i5, 6g and the side number pad for as low of a price as possible. But if I can get the serial port, I'd kinda need that. I wasn't really sure on the "Intel" graphics on the Inspiron, so I went toward the XPS for the Nvidia graphics.

You can always use a USB to serial adapter although they can be somewhat unreliable.
