    Netbook

    I've seen this netbook in argos :- MSI Wind U100 10in Netbook
    But it doesn't have a cd rom with it. Is there anyone else that got them at low prices with a cd rom?

    Pretty sure netbooks don't have cd/dvd drives

    Well thats not cool

    Argos sometimes sell them at a cheaper price on their Argos Outlet on ebay...but they won't come with a cdrom drive. The idea of netbooks is portability - if you want a cdrom drive you'll need to buy an external drive and connect via USB or buy a laptop.....

    Get a second hand or brand new external disk drive if you need it.

    you could get one of these for your netbook:-

    Netbooks don't have disk drives to save space. Why do you need one … Netbooks don't have disk drives to save space. Why do you need one anyway. I don't use one on my netbook, and only use the one on my main PC once every month or two. They're a thing of the past.



    i have to disagree

    It have to be at least a cd/dvd.. it would be useful for taking in the car for kids to watch a dvd

    What do you use one for? Have never used mine on my laptop (over 2 years old) and rarely use my desktop one

    put all of your dvds onto an external hard drive. all of your films taking up as much space as 1 or 2 dvd cases

    Very easy, I use handbrake - mainly because it's super quick. But you usually end up with 7-9gb file at the end. You might want to try a way which compresses it a little more, especially if you're viewing on the netbook so losing a bit of quality isn't important
