Heq 5 cable

Hi all,
I'm not sure on which cable to get to connect the mount to my laptop.
Can i buy a standard cable then get a serial to usb converter or get one of these http://www.store.shoestringastronomy...roducts_eq.htm
I have an old laptop with no serial ports.
I will go the eq mod way but before i order cables it would be good if someone here could help.
Cheers
Andy

One of these is what most people use.
Are you saying you don't have any USB ports available?
