Searching for a new USB CD Burner

Hi,

I'm looking for a new USB CD Burner to purchase for my brother. He has an original iBook and is leaving for Africa to work with the Peace Corps and wants a CD burner to create photo albums to send home with iPhotos.

I am not interested in purchasing an used burner because I don't want this breaking down on him while he is gone.

Any information on where to look for one of these would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Deryk

Don't worry about gettiing a fast burner for it, the fastest a Mac can burn a CD over the USB 1.1 that is included on that ibook is 2x. Don't go off wasting money on the fastest burner.

I use an Iomega, big purple thing, slow (2x) but smooth as silk, no coasters.
