many computer shops online and brick and mortar also sell external USB optical drives if you don't want to pay the premium for the apple external optical drive. Something to think about if it's only something you need for a limited use like occasional software installation.

thanks for suggestion. downloaded trial version but this keeps coming up:

error occurred- The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author.

Try registering you key on Adobe.com and downloading a installer.

Or try remote disk.

Also you can buy an external DVD drive and then return it when you're done.
