old serial port-based printer, considering you won't be able to buy a
new computer that's compatible with it.
That gives you two choices:
1) printer with an Ethernet interface. These tend not to be found on
lower end inkjets, or none that I'm aware of
2) from your description I *believe* your Powerbook has a CardBus
compatible PC card slot. Various companies sell CardBus to USB adapters:
This way, you'll be able to use almost any new printer you want, and add
on other USB devices.
