Can I still get a laptop with an optical drive?

Episode 1224 (2:06:21)

Mary from Newport Beach, CA

Mary would like to get a laptop that has the capability to burn a CD. Do they make them anymore? Leo says that she's probably not going to get an ultrabook for it. She will probably have to get an external drive that plugs in via USB. She could buy a larger laptop, a desktop replacement to do it, but they're heavy. She's not going to use that drive very often, so why not just buy a lighter, thinner laptop and buy an external optical drive for when she needs it? Leo also advises considering a Chromebook. They're cheaper, more secure, and all too often people buy computers that are just too powerful for their needs.
