You talk about upgrading from the black and white model. What are you upgrading from and what are you upgrading to? You mention your B&W model connects with a USB cable? If so, then it is not a Classic Pronto. Hence, I ask the models before we go much further.
Nothing will get past the cabling issue, even Tonto. You need a COM port and Pronto must be on the lowest COM port (Specifically for ProntoEdit - not required for Tonto).
That being said, you are using a remote that was discontinued around 2004 (8 years ago). With regard to your post about connecting devices with ease, try to put a PS/2 mouse onto a laptop these days, especially a laptop without a docking station.
Yes, you can take this post and print as you like. You might also want to print out the Classic Pronto FAQ (see link at bottom of this page) and take that with you to a shop.
