View Full Version : Optical drives!?!?

Uhm.. Hello Asus - we are in 2012!

Drop the archaic integrated optical drives and instead use the space for something more useful.
They really are so rarely used that I no longer have an optical drive in my two main computers (desktop and laptop) and I have instead opted for an external USB drive.

So here's hoping the next generation will be without optical drives.

A LOT of people still buy games on DVD and they will for years to come. I bought Star Wars: The Old Republic on DVD so I wouldn't have to download the whole thing. People also use laptops for watching movies on the go. Optical is going to be around for a long time.
