If you often travel with an ultraportable notebook that lacks legacy ports, but you don't want to lug along a bulky docking station, check out Keyspan's $179 Mini USB Port Replicator.
This petite, translucent grey unit weighs a mere 60 grams but packs a serial port and a parallel port on one side, and two USB 1.1 ports on the other. After a quick driver install, you can attach the mobile phone-size device to a USB port (even the tiniest of subnotebooks usually has one or two of them) and then use the serial and parallel ports to hook up your notebook to a printer, a PDA, or a digital camera.
Mini USB Port Replicator Price: $179.
