Abit will apparently introduce motherboards shortly that will eliminate PS2 and serial ports in favor of more USB connectors.
This has been a long time coming, and is inevitable.
But how big a deal is it to you?
While we did find PS2 to USB adapters, they seem to be pricey at the moment: $25 and up.
Of course, you could also replace your keyboard and (older) mouse.
Over the next year, you’ll see the Abit boards (and probably others like it), and those that retain these ports.
Are PS2 and serial ports a big enough deal for you to choose a mobo with them over one that doesn’t?
Presume the ones that don’t have it boot, say, five to seconds faster. Would that change your mind?
Tell me what you think.
