The closest setup you can get to a NAO would likely be a Kondo KHr-2HV plus a RoBoard. This would essentially be a development platform where you could work on some basic image processing, wireless control, add your choice of sensors etc.

You can see your COM devices under the windows device manager or you can open a serial terminal and see the COM pots available. If you have many other USB-to-serial adapters, then we recommend to temporarily disconnect them to narrow down the ones that interest you.

... the remaining 422 servos, and a left arm using the 755. Most starter humanoids have at least 18-20 DoF, so if you wanted to reproduce, say, the Kondo, you would need to add some additional 422 servos and perhaps some brackets. Use the 645MG servos in the legs. http://www.robotshop.com/en/kondo-khr-3hv-humanoid-robot-kit.html ...
