I currently run my HP Laserjet 5 from the parallel port of my desktop.  But I want to move to operating solely from a laptop.  Problem is, most recent laptops no longer have a parallel port.  Is there any way to run a Laserjet 5 from such a laptop.  For example is there such a thing as a USB to parallel adapter?
Thanks

Here's one, but there are less expensive ones:
