My local staples has the I/O Magic 16x DVD burner for $60 and the 512 Sandisk Pro stick for $70, after rebates. I got the burner on Black Friday for $40 and it is the BenQ. I love it. The online special prices are higher so check the local store circular.
They also have a 250 gig maxtor drive for $130 in case you need a littile extra storage.
