Best External Drive for Thinkpad X60

I am buying a Lenovo Thinkpad X60 which does not have an optical drive built in so I need an external USB 2.0 drive. I really like the Lightscribe type labeling technology so that would be nice too. Lenovo has one that is expensive partly because it is so small (11.8 oz) but I am not sure this is such a big deal in that I do not imagine I will be carrying it around. Will mainly use to copy cds and dvds to the hard drive and burn cds and dvds. Does anyone know who makes the Lenovo drive (link below)?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
