Microsoft PS/2 serial mice are not guaranteed to work correctly
with laptops due to the low power specification on serial ports
found on some laptops.
PS/2 serial mice with SSMA adapters (cigarette box shaped adapters) may
not work properly with the Zenith laptop models 181 and 183.
Mice with UMA adapters (cigar-shaped adapters) with the version 6.14 or
later mouse driver have been tested informally and seem to work properly
with the Zenith laptops.
The Zenith product included here is manufactured by a vendor independent
of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this
product's performance or reliability.
