Hi!

I recently bought a laptop - it only has one input port for mic and headphones (has symbol next to it for both). Is this normal? And what headsets would work with this?

I need something for Skype that isnt too expensive - anyone have a suggestion for me? :)

It's pretty normal and most new laptops are being sold with the single jack. (mine too)
Do a google search for single jack headsets and you'll find plenty.

There are also splitters available which goes from single 3.5mm combination jack to 2 separate jacks for sound output and input.

Thanks! Trying to search for a splitter on Takealot but most seem to be for a audio only i.e. they split for two headphones rather than a mic and audio input.

Its also common to get wired headphones with mic integrated .... so the single jack works great.
