HELP!!! One of the items on my list is out of stock, and I want this computer ASAP! It is the Samsung DVD/ CD Burner. I don't know much about computers so please help find a replacement!

The DVD burners are going out of stock like wildfire...

You can get this one instead: - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW SATA CD/DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners

Of course, when that samsung goes out of stock, it has free shipping...not when it's in stock...:P

I just had to wing it and pick a dvd burner by samsung that had similar stats. I'll cross my fingers and hope it works. In the meanwhile I'll have to wait until the oackage comes and assemble the computer sometime this weekend or next week.
