Tablets and ultrabooks have been gaining market share for a number of months now but in many cases they miss something – an optical drive.

The drive is 18% thinner and 8% lighter than conventional DVD writers. It utilizes a single USB port to provide both power and data connectivity and measures just 14 millimeters thick.
