Part: XII Upgrading Your Storage Drives > Replacing, Upgrading, or Adding a CD/...

Chapter 42. Replacing, Upgrading, or Adding a CD/DVD Drive

A CD-ROM drive is standard equipment in a PC, and some PC manufacturers have already started replacing them with CD-RW drives as standard equipment.

The main factor that has helped to push CD-ROM/CD-RW drives into the mainstream is their continuing drop in price. A top-of-the-line 56x (56-speed or faster) CD-ROM drive often sells for under $50, and average CD-RW drives can now be had for less than $80.
