    Anyone have an alternative DVD RW external drive they'd recommend? The $79 for Apple's seems a bit steep to me.

    I use HPs with my Mini. It gets the job done, and on sale for $45.

    You can buy a bare DVD drive for $16 and connect it with an adapter that costs $20. This adapter will connect SATA or EIDE drives, optical or hard drives to a USB port. I have used mine for a lot of trouble shooting of hard drives.
