Do any Tablet PCs have internal DVD drives???

    That's true, but how often would you be using it? Once a day? Then it
    This really depends on the user's needs. I often have to go on trips where I am
    constantly using a DVD drive for video clips & tutorials as well as a
    street-mapping DVD for driving directions. I realize I could put these right on
    the hard drive, but I would probably fill up a 60GB hard drive rather quick.
    I assume the battery life will improve as the design of the tablets get better.
    I remember that laptop batteries only lasted a couple hrs. when they first came
    on the market.
    I was referring to an internal-bay DVD drive. I dont like external
    drives....mostly because they dont conform to the true "mobile computing"
    nirvana we are all seeking.

    Acer already does on the C302 model.

    That model features a dual-format DVD burner..... I was referring to the new DVD
    dual-layer burners that can burn to 9 GB media. I am sure they will be
    available in the tablets soon.
