    It would be better to have one considering application are getting bigger and theres multiple reasons. You can make your own movies and put a lot more data than a cdrw and I think it is well worth it. So if you can afford it...BUY IT. :)

    Duff-Man says.....no, you just need a DVD *reader* to rip DVD's - you need a burner to burn DVD's...so, if your MAc has the "combo" drive (dvd/cdrw) then you can rip....oh yeah!

    While you don't need a DVD burner, I must say that it's such a valuable tool to have on your computer. I'd definitely go for the DVD burner anyway, because once you have it you will wonder how you lived without it.

    Definitely an external dvd burner (well at least in my case, I have a Powerbook). They are dual layer and burn much faster.
