Cheap Ultrabooks with Optical Drives in 2016: Best DVD Ultrabook Reviews – cheapest ultrabook with DVD drive

Cheapest Ultrabook laptop with DVD drive – Best cheap ultrabook with DVD drive in 2016

Ultrabooks with DVD drives have their own benefits. Users buying these usually like watching movies from their DVDs on the move. These people do not like to carry the bulky laptops and want to enjoy the long battery life that ultrabooks offer.

People who buy ultrabooks normally come across laptops with no DVD drives. But all the companies are still churning out cheap ultrabooks with DVD drives for those who cannot live without one. I personally know several people who still like to pop in their old family DVD movie into their computer. Some just do not have the knowledge and time to rip-off the video from DVD to their computer as it requires special software. Nevertheless there are plenty of laptop companies that have managed to squeeze in a DVD drive into ultrabook’s shell and many ultrabooks with optical drives in 2016 are on sale.

Best ultrabook with DVD drive is Asus F555LA  #1 seller

Asus F555LA packs full HD display, DVD drive and latest Intel processor. It is thin, light and very capable enough for daily chores and multimedia content. It is powerful enough for content creation as well. Despite packing all that, this ultrabook features DVD drive and a thin chassis making it easy to carry around.

Ultrabooks with DVD drive: why do they matter?

Convenience: DVDs can store more than 4GB of data and if you have a lot of DVD disks, it might be just convenient to have a laptop or ultrabook with DVD drive. While it is totally possible to achieve the same by buying an external DVD reader, you will not be carrying it around with you all the time. So having one with DVD drive built in makes sense. Just keep in mind that you will only find DVD drives in 15-inch ultrabooks as 11-inch ultrabooks and 13-inch thin laptops do not have space to accommodate one.

Old media: If you have lot of media on old CD and DVD disks and you are unable to rip-off to computer due to legal reasons, it might be a good idea to get an ultrabook with DVD drive.

Feels complete: We all grew up with desktops and laptops with DVD drive and that is why some of us might be looking to same feature in ultrabook that we are about to purchase. Some of us do not like losing a feature just to gain a few.
