Q. visitor asked, yes looking for a desktop with an old school ps/2 slot for keyboard

Mike S.
Hi, I'm Mike, how can I help you find the right desktop tonight?
yes looking for a desktop with an old school ps/2 slot for keyboard
Mike S.
Can I ask why?
dont want anything fancy as I am using it for my MAME arcade using an older HotRod joystick
Mike S.
Have you tried a ps2 to usb adapter?
yes, will not work with usb cable
needs a ps/2 cable because it was made in 1998
i could update the hotrod but would rather get a newer system
have even thought of finding an older refurbished desktop but not sure where to look. MAME emulator works better with older windows programs
Mike S.
I would look at goodwill, local thrift shops, and then Ebay.
I don't think you will find anything that will adapt if you have already tried usb, as even the slot "card" type is still just a USB cable inside the machine.
Thanks for your help. I will try your advice. Had not thought of Thrift shop
may just have to update hot rod after all
Mike S.
:> I feel you, I have old thrustmasters that I just can't get rid of. 9 pin serial
cant beat the classics. Thanks again
