    Also, the one you're looking at is shitty. for starters, it's only 8X so get a better one.

    Why does the fact that it's 8X make it shifty? Do you know about a faster Slim DVD Burner for laptops?

    nice but pretty expensive. 8x times is the fastest laptop drive i've seen.

    i've had a look on the nec uk site and they dont mention the 6750a, but it looks pretty much the same as the 6650a,

    ive also seen sony and lite-on drives. is nec the best to go for?

    Shame you didn't ask a little earlier, I could have asked the tech support guys at CCL when I was in on Saturday, though to be fair they probably don't have much dealing with slimlines. I'll see if there's anything on their forum.

    Edit: nope, nothing there.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    they only seem to stock 2 slimline drives, the nec one, and i think the other is a lite-on, but its more expensive, and is slot loading.
