    Nice, but....

    At 8x speeds, you can actually burn an entire DVD in a bit over 7 minutes (4x is the one that takes around 15 minutes). Pretty incredible when you think about it..... I'm glad I've held off on buying a DVD burner until now......... thinking about 2x DVD burners that take 30 minutes to burn a disc.

    Will Apple support it

    I thought Apple didn't support all third party DVD burners.

    Will Apple allow iDVD and DVDSP write to it?

    Apple will not support this drive. Toast does. I saw it on sale at CompUSA this weekend for $69.

    he probably means the price of Toast, not the drive.

    ddr2

    US MEMORY MANUFACTURER Micron will say today that it has started volume production of DDR2 memory.
    The firm is shipping the memory chip in densities including 256Mbit, 512Mbit and 1Gbit, and those will make their appearance in dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) in densities from 128MB to 4GB, Micron will say.

    It claims it is the only memory manufacturer with the three densities already available, and will start shipping modules and chips in volume in the first quarter of 2004.

    DDR2 is essential to Intel's future microprocessor strategy. Starting next year, Intel will produce a range of "Grantsdale" chip sets which make use of DDR2 memory.
