Hello! I have some legacy software that I used to control a gate on my property that currently runs on a very old Dell laptop running Windows XP. The thing is going to die at some point and I want to make sure I have a cloning and backup situation in place for when that happens.

I want to buy a more modern laptop of some kind. My requirements are that I need to be able to put an SSD in it and it needs a built in 56k modem that will be recognized on a COM port. Thats about it. I don't know much about PC laptops. Google hasn't been much of a help. Anybody know the latest model of a PC laptop out there with a 56k modem onboard?

thanks

Only ones may be high end rugged and industrial models. Would be simpler to just get any laptop and then get a USB modem for it. The driver and settings should create a virtual COM port.

May be a good idea to find a newer gate controller, you can only find stuff for so long that will run old software.
