oops, sorry... didn't mean to leave you in the dark. I found this out because I was in the market for a DVD player. I came across only one DVD player that is slotted. It is made by Phillips. Now they aren’t the only ones who have slotted DVD capability, just the only ones who sell the player itself. Sony has a pretty bad ass one but you have to buy surround sound with it. Did i mention im in college?
So then I got to thinking about why you couldn’t do the same with a notebook; after all, its just one less thing that is going to break. So I thought i'd get the thread out there.
