Build you own. It's a cinch to buy an external case...get one with USB2 and firewire connections and then go and buy a quality burner like Pioneer, Benq, LG etc. Any brand-name unit should be okay. Putting the drive in the case is a no-brainer and any retailer worth their salt should be able to tell you what to do. It's simply a matter of unscrewing the case, setting a jumper on the drive and connecting two cables...really simple and once you see it done or have it explained to you you'll probably never forget how to do it. Building your own will save you money, believe me. BTW welcome to the forum.
