So I just picked up a cheap USB DVD-RW drive to make the process of installing operating systems and other software on optical disc-less liliputers a bit easier. And when I took it out of the box, I couldn’t help but notice just how much larger it is than the computers I’ll be using it with.
Granted, I wasn’t looking for a slim disc drive. I was looking for a cheap one. But it’s just kind of funny that we live in a world where a disc drive can be so much larger than a fully functional computer.
If you don’t feel like spending the money on your own external disc drive, there are still plenty of ways to install operating systems and other software using a USB flash disk.
