Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

You know these new ultralight laptops, cheap and small but for basic applications only? I assume they'd work with an external DVD drive?

What about problems though? - there's nowhere for a boot disk to go.

I´ve been pricing laptops and have considered one of these. Does anyone have one?

If they have the option to boot from the external drive, that will work.

Thanks, not sure if that's an option. Does anyone know for sure? What I was thinking is that, if the external drive connects via USB, doesn't the machine need to boot first before reading from a USB drive?
