-=PCTechTalk=- Re: CD ROM Drive-Update

Cd/Dvd + & - burners are really cheap.  I saw one on sale for $40 the other 
day.  Today I looked and see a couple for $50 (LG) and $60 (Emprex) and a 
Sony for $70.
I did not do a search..I just looked at the Fry's Ads.

If you have a CompUSA near you..they are closing their doors for good now. 
They have an ad out for 20%-40% off almost everything..except computers 
which is only 5% off.
The catch is..that is 20%-40% off the ORIGINAL price.

But, you might find a good deal there.  But hurry!
