made a skim cut miked the part tried to put the number in the X dro it won't let me do that Z dro works this is in mach 4 lathe build 3206 need help please !!!!!

I'm a new member to this forum and have been told that the computer used to run Mach3 has to be a desk top computer with a parallel port running 32 bit windows 7.  I have a friend that is a computer geek that sold me a business laptop computer that has a docking station that has a parallel port that he thinks will work, I hope that the laptops that they say will not work is a regular laptop some of the older laptops have a parallel port if it won't work I have a extra desktop that I will be able to use I just hope that the business laptop with a docking station with a parallel port will work.  What is the reason that they say a laptop will not work, has anybody ever tried a business laptop with a docking station that has a parallel port?
