conrad-padPart of the appeal of mini-laptops like the Acer Aspire One or Asus Eee PC line of computers is that they’re small and light. But manufacturers have to make a few compromises. For instance, few netbooks have optical disc drives. If you primarily plan to use the computer to connect to the internet, that might not be a big deal. But if you regularly play games, watch videos, or install software from discs, you might want to look at an add-on like the Conrad Mini-Notebook Aufrüst Pad.

This pad can accommodate a SlimLine CD or DVD drive, has room for a 2.5 inch hard drive, and adds 2 extra USB ports to your netbook.

The pad costs about 30 Euros if you order from Conrad’s international web site. For some reason, there are no pictures on that page, but you can find some on the company’s German page.

  1. it’d be more interesting if it extended the battery life of the netbook. too difficult to do as it would most likely be netbook specific.

    still nice piece of kit though. currently use iso files on my ipod and mount them as cds on my acer aspire one. doesn’t work for all but covers 90% of my installation needs.
