Re: GIMMIE!

Yep, I do use my DVD drive, oddly enough. Been using it for audio books lately, but also get the odd data CD or DVD that needs reading.

About the only option I might have, may be via the ExpressCard slot but I'd have to research it. Quick search seems to suggest that adaptors exist for this, and that Windows 7 has problems booting such a set-up however Linux should be doable using it as cache for the spinning rust. Just a bit tricky setting up the initrd to make it bootable.

However, I'm in no rush. I can either rush out, spend $500 on a 1TB mSATA disk, possibly as much as $50, and a good few hours of my time to make it work, or I can just sit tight a little while longer.
