Aslong as your not going to be using DVD's then you should be fine with that...

If not an external DVD-RW drive is only about £25. Can't seem to find any normal dvds on quick search.

Your best just getting a cheap dvd one, almost certainly somewhere down the line you will have a dvd that you need to use on the computer

You seem to have bought a NETBOOK rather than a LAPTOP, they are slightly different things.

For example the screeen is only 10" which is rather small.

Most laptops have at least a 15" screen.

...had the offer been for an Optical Rampant Rabbit then I am pretty sure you would be leading authority on that thread.....lol....

MB...I truly admire you courage and persistence in filling that "gap" of information that you required...:p
