    How easy are these to get? I can get 3rd party USB ports with plugs that
    will fit, but can't keep the PS/2 mouse port unless I butcher the
    original plug, which occupies all 18 pins on the header.

    I've bought 'em via the Asus distributor in the past, but they aren't
    cheap

    Pop the pins out and transfer them to the mouse plug. All you need is a
    pin to bend the plastic locking tabs slightly out of the way while pulling
    gently on the wire.
