Freecom's Mobile DVD RW Recorder LS Pro: ideal for Air and Eee?

The Mobile DVD RW Recorder LS Pro measures 17 x 144 x 140mm and weighs in at a pocket friendly 600g, which Freecom claims makes the drive “the ideal companion” for both PC and Mac notebook users.

The drive reads from and writes to several different disk storage formats, including DVD±R/RW and DVD+R double layer. It also supports CDs.

A USB port built into the drive’s rear allows you to connect it into either a PC or Mac, though MacBook owners may prefer to use the drive's FireWire 400 link.

Freecom’s Mobile DVD RW Recorder LS Pro is available now for £80 (€102/$153).
