I too had to get one of those recently, having switched laptops -- 2x the
RAM, 2x the speed, and 3+ times the HD space. No drivers involved
anywhere, just plugged it in and it works. The other one had a single PS2
port, this one doesn't have any but does have two USB ports.
And it cost me less than $5.
