F**k the DVD drive. It's getting more and more outdated every day.
I don't have one in my system. My work laptop does have one, but i rarely use it. I only use it when some employees ask me to copy some cd's for them. Usually music for the gym.
So i would get an SSD and new harddrive as extra storage.
You might need something like this to make the harddrive secure in the DVD drive slot.
