    I'm thinking about buying a Samsung NC10 Netbook but it doesn't have an integral CD/DVD drive. Can someone please suggest how I might best load software which I already have installed on my desktop PC and hold separately on CD/DVD? Would this best be achieved by using a USB DVD drive or by copying to a USB Flash Drive and then installing from there? I'm looking for the easiest and most cost effective solution.

    Thanks

    Brian

    It's 640 pixels deep - bit of a pain in the bum for web browsing.

    LiteOn EZ-DUB 20x External USB DVD±RW DL & DVD-Ram - Retail - Ebuyer might do if the NC10 can power it.

    For the same money you can have a 15" screen laptop with built in DVD offering a lot more flexibility.
