    I am planning on purchasing a 2.0Ghz Intel Core2Duo MacBook, with a 6x superdrive, and also Roxio Toast 8 Titanum. Is this MacBook able to burn or etch labels onto the actual DVD's using light-scribing technology? The info on Roxio says that it uses the technology if the system is compatible. Thanks for your input! ;)

    In the item description it says that it can print or laser-etch your discs with personalized labels and case covers and inserts. I have never used it before so I am not sure how it does this.

    The actual drive has a laser etcher on the top that only works with special disks. Macs dont have this technology built-in. And no laptop has lightscribe at all ever.

    Actually, several HP notebook models have lightscribe drives available as an option. Other than that, though, you're absolutely correct.
