Don't get a lap top. Get a desktop for your machine. There are options for USB. Parallel printer port is the most common connection though.

Dont think so, I have some vague reccolections of someone managing to use one but not sure.
Sorry I couldnt be more helpfull but might be worth doing a search for USB Parallel port on the forum.
