    Does anyone know where one can get (if at all) slim, slot-loading, dual-layer DVD burners with Lightscribe that would fit in a laptop? Or in this case, Mac Mini? I've only found tray loading so far, and wouldn't mind upgrading my Mini.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the case, but I figured I'd ask just in case. I've seen tray loading ones... but no slot loading.

    You can get an external one. It'd be faster and not much more if you buy a cheap FW case. I just use stickers on my CDs though.

    Never seen a slot loading one. My HP has a built-in lightscribe drive but that's a tray.

    I really hope Apple adopts the LightScribe technology from HP and probably take it a step further and also put them in their MBP line up. That would be awesome, specially since i am planning to buy a MBP soon!! :D
