Howdy all Okay I have decided to buy a Macbook to replace my aging iMac Core Duo. It still works fine I just want the portability. Not MBA portability a Macbook is fine for my needs. I have decided to go for the base model and upgrade the ram and HD myself afterwards as obviously its cheaper this way. As you know the base one only comes with a combo drive. I only really burn a couple of DVD's a month and dont want to pay the extra £120+ for the superdrive when i don't need the other bits like the slightly quicker processor and extra hd space. So now the question. Will any external DVD burner work with Macbook, now I would have thought so as its just really a standard device, but i have read mixed responses. The one I am interested in is an LG one which says its only compatible with Windows but it does include Nero software which might be why it only lists windows. Surely any of them should work? http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132741/show_product_specifications?spectype=extended Thats the product in question, opinions welcome. So doing it that way I save £80. But if its going to be more hassle than its worth then I will stop being a cheap skate and just buy the middle one. Cheers.
