If all you're doing is making CD copies, get a low end Athlon or Pentium4 PC from www.newegg.com and make sure it has a DVD-RW drive on it.

If you want to make a copy of a movie DVD to another DVD, don't you need a dual-layer one? (Otherwise, I think you have to use two DVD-Rs per DVD you copy.) I have a dual layer DVD-R/W, too. Shows you how much I use it for that, doesn't it?

PS: Dual layer DVD-Rs were going for $10 each the last time I looked.

I've not seen them as cheep as $10 for the drive but they aren't terribly expensive. It seems that you could use any computer, and that you just need the drive if I'm not mistaken.
