    Default which DVD writer to buy?

    Hello all

    Hope you can give me some buying advice.

    We are in the UK.

    We have just bought an HP netbook mini 201-1004sa for our daughter >
    HP Mini 210-1004sa PC (WB878EA) specifications - HP Home & Home Office products


    When we fire up the netbook for the first time we will need to install some AV [most likely Avast free]. I’ll download the .exe installer to my PC, connect the netbook to the LAN offline and install Avast on the Netbook from there.

    However, although the netbook has no CD/DVD tray, it has got USB ports. To install anything from disk we will need to buy an external USB DVD writer.

    Which DVD writer would you advise?

    Nothing too flashy. Simple is good. Just want to load stuff to the netbook and write stuff to DVDs from all 4 PCs & the netbook.

    Thank you for any suggestions.

    Thanks for that. I'll have a good read up.

    I have an Amazon UK account so no worries there.
