That infernal hum!

I appreciate all the suggestions I got a few weeks ago when I asked 
for help getting rid of an AC hum when I connected my stereo to my 
desktop computer through a patch cord.  Since then, I've never 
managed to get the hum to go away for very long.  It keeps coming 

So I'm thinking of another strategy for recording records and tapes 
into computer files:  Use my laptop.  trouble is, my laptop doesn't 
have an auxiliary input jack, just a mike jack.  Anything that I play 
into that jack comes out loud and distorted.  Is there any kind of 
adapter that I can get that will make it possible to use the laptop 
for this purpose?  Or do I have to get another laptop?  That's not 
going to happen for awhile.
