    Good day,I am interested in a mini laptop but do not want to get one that has to use an external cddrive - want to find the smallest one out there (that doesn't cost a small fortune) that has a built in dvd rw drive. Have been looking and looking at them online and haven't found one yet that I see has one. Do you know of any, and if so, have you been able to use one and have any user opinion of it? Thanks!

    hey absotaGor. i dont mean to sound like a jerk so if i come off that way i am sorry. but ummm, i fail to really see the benfit of a mini. sure its small, but a lot of them dont even have disc drives. sure you could put in in your back pack or something but it would get josaled and probably brake. i might be missing somthing but they seem kinda useless. you are sacrificing ram, drive space, a larger display, and over all preformance for size. seems kinda dumb to me. sorry i have always thought that way about them.
    also if you are buting one from a store just ask the guy if you need an external hard drive with the thing. seems the simplest way about it.

    It would be not to buy a mini laptop but to buy a normal one, depending which because you may be a gammer, programmer or any kind of man/woman. So please tell me what you are, and why are you buying this laptop and I will tell you more. I have bought laptops alot of times, for me and my friends and workers.
