Most netbooks do not have a CD/DVD drive because mainly of the dimension limitation. With a size as small as a portable DVD player (a thickness of about an inch) where can you fit in a DVD drive? So is there a netbook or mini-laptop model with a DVD drive?

Answer: Yes. So far, there are two. The first one is the ASUS Eee PC 1004Dn. It has a look similar to that of the Eee PC 1002HA, but it has the a disc drive that could read and burn DVDs and CDs. Cool huh! The problem is, the American market may not see it soon. It may be released in China and Europe.

ASUS Eee PC 1004Dn specifications/features:
* CPU: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280
* Display: 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
* RAM: 1GB
* HDD: 160GB
* Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth
* Expansion: 3 USB ports, 1 VGA port
* Dimensions: 10.4″ x 7.1″ x 1″

The latest company to announce the release of netbooks with a DVD drive is Japan’s Mouse Computers. It may launch the LB-F1500 netbook.

Mouse Computers LB-F1500 netbook features/specifications:
- 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU
- 10.2 inch
- 1024 x 600 pixel display
- 1GB of RAM
- 160GB Hard drive
- DVD Super Multi Drive.
- Windows XP
- 802.11b/g support
- 5.2 hours of battery life

The price? It could be around $750 US.
