It’s nice in its way. It will play DVDs, it’ll write data on ‘em, it’ll even inscribe them with text and graphics if you care to utilize the Lightscribe function. But I can hardly think of a single situation in which something like this would be needed. Can you?

I mean, netbooks would croak after powering this thing for half an hour. Every regular-sized laptop worth its salt has a DVD drive already. The market for these must just be incredibly small.

    A definite great read….
