    well DVD writers are the in-thing!! If u got it on ur lappy it'll be great...if u dont, i dont think u will have probs. Prob in the next 3-4 yrs u might have everyone writing their stuff on DVD's so u might feel left out. And CD's will slowly go out of trend...just like cassettes have gone! So...it actually depends. if u got a DVD player that shud do for uni atleast!
    my desktop dint have CD writer and it felt sad...
    anyways, i've got some good news...My budget's back to 70k(my broinlaw insisting that i buy good one(read expensive one) and he's cashing in 45k!!! ).
    I'm goin thru the apple website now...
