Hardware recommendation for a laptop with two NIC's (network interface controllers)? [closed]

I need a laptop that has two network cards onboard. I've tried in vein searching for such a beast. Can anyone shed some light on where I can find such hardware? It should also have a parallel port.

"That's gonna be mighty hard to find. Just finding one with a parallel port is difficult these days.

Have you considered an option of getting a regular one (that has parallel port and network card inside) and then getting another network card in pcmcia form?"

"None with two inbuilt NICs.

Your best bet is to get a USB-to-Ethernet dongle, or a PCMCIA or ExpressCard Ethernet solution.

As to parallel-port, get a USB-to-Parallel port extension, or go for one of the older notebooks (plenty have parallel ports built-in)."
