Most older ThinkPads have a Male DB-9 RS232 Serial Port, capable of running up to 115,200bps

Current ThinkPads no longer have a physical serial port, but still have the logic integrated, all that is required is to attach the ThinkPad to a supported Dock or Port Replicator with a serial port. Also there is an Ultrabay Slim Serial/Parallel Port Adapter for T6x series.

ThinkPads produced from 1994 onwards have a NS16550A compatible uart.
