    If I ever buy a computer w/o a combo drive (ie an ultraportable), this is the combo drive I'd buy. Its batterys will last through burning 8-9 CDs at 24x speed.

    Yeah, the speed of the combo drive is 24x10x8x24x...not bad.

    The press release can be found here

    Nice, except it's USB 2, not FireWire. You'd think Sony would've added an "iLink" connection. Maybe later.
