I’m thinking of buying a notebook computer, however the included optical drives in general seem rather pathetic. If you look on the Dell or HP/Compaq forums for example, there are numerous threads that “scream” for a firmware update. However, in most cases, it is not forthcoming.
Can anyone recommend either a solid notebook optical drive and which manufacturer builds a notebook with that drive? Any and all thoughts appreciated.
If a notebook DVD burner is going to be such a hassle, maybe I’m better off with a DVD/CDRW combo drive.
