Nice one, I have ordered one.

Where do I plug it into my laptop (Sony Vaio)?


You could use there adaptors if you have an adaptor for USB, USB to Gameport or maybe Printer Port. Or you could use a new Competition Pro directly for USB. Or maybe you have luck to find an Amiga joystick to USB adaptor on eBay... But they are rare and maybe not cheap.


So the USB option Joystick is the best one?

(the joysticks are the same, aren't they?)

They look the same to me, Sid (except that one comes with a cd of games of course).

I got mine for £9.99 from: http://www.core-digital.co.uk/product_i ... cts_id=618

Slight word of warning - I've had to send mine back because they've packed up twice!! Maybe that was just bad luck ? But don't seem as robust as the originals...

Sid, you can get a Competition Pro with either a USB connection (for PCs or with an Amiga connector)
