Chapter 10. CDs, DVDs, and iTunes > Burning CDs and DVDs

10.2. Burning CDs and DVDs

If your Mac has a CD-RW drive or an Apple SuperDrive in it, you've got yourself the world's most convenient and elegant backup system. It's just like having a floppy disk drive, really—except that a blank CD holds at least 450 times as many files, and a blank DVD holds about 3,250 times as many!

You can buy blank CDs very inexpensively in bulk ($20 for 100 discs, for example) via the Web. (To find the best prices, visit www.shopper.com or www.buy.com and search for blank CD-R.) Blank DVDs are more expensive, but not ridiculously so considering their capacity. At this writing, the Apple Web site, for example, sells them at $20 for five—and prices keep dropping.
