Do you still have and/or use an Optical (CD, DVD, Blu-ray) Drive on your computer?


I was just wondering how many of us here still have or use a CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive in their computers? One of the computing magazines I read, recently built a "Dream Machine" and no longer included an Optical Drive in it. You've also got "Ultrabooks" and the Macbook Air that no longer have them either. I still continue to use them, as I buy Audio CDs from time to time, have older PC games and other software on discs.

    Same here, Adding to the details above. From time to time I make (all-regions) DVD-video discs out of family videos. Thanks for the response.

    Well it's good to know that those external add-on drives work with both Windows and Mac OS. Thanks for the response.

    That's very true, current Popular software can be in direct download for retail box form. Never really thought of doing that with a laptop/notebook, interesting idea.
