Freecom releases ultra-thin DVD writer for notebook users



Freecom has announced its thin and light DVD writer, aimed squarely at notebook users who demand compact units to go with their snazzy portable PCs.

Measuring just 1.7cms thick with an almost square 14.4 x 14cms footprint, and weighing 600g, it could “slide right into your pocket” – as the company claims – but it might be better in a padded pocket in your laptop bag.

It works over USB and FireWire 400 and is happy to work with both PCs and Macs. It costs £80, so if you’re desperate to burn DVDs on the move, this could be the kit for you.
