|Hey ibs, does the absence of a 3.5" FDD bother you?|
My last laptop didnt have one - or rather it had an external - and there were a couple of times I coudnt get on with my work as I didnt have the ability to transfer files onto my desktop. (Didnt bring the external around).
On the 4080, the FDD option was greyed in the customization page, and I therefore took it as an included option that couldnt be changed. Sort of like the SXGA screen and the 128 MB video card.
Nowadays, though, I have the option of burning the stuff on a CD, so it shouldnt be a big problem. Only an annoyance.
