I am in the process of purchasing a 2.2 lbs laptop. This laptop will not have an internal dvd. Any recommendations or warnings from those who have gone down this path before?
Thanks for your input, I really appreciate it.
PS I notice that the OptoRite TED80Y1 8x USB 2.0 DVD±RW will not run using just the USB connection. I need a drive that will run off USB. I know that some of the LaCie DVD drives might fill the bill. However, I would like to spend <$150. Another choice is the AOpen below.
AOpen Black 4X DVD+R 2.4X DVD+RW 2X DVD-R 2X DVD-RW 8X DVD-ROM 16X CD-R 10X CD-RW 24X CD-ROM 2M Cache USB 2.0 External Slim DVD Burner Model ESV-289U - Retail
