DVD/CD Drive Options for Future Dell Computer

Originally appeared on CLA NOW blog on 2/16/2015

The standard configuration Dell computer used by many CLA faculty and staff has changed. All NEW Dell models will no longer have a DVD/CD drive (also known as an optical drive). This is a change at the factory level as technology needs of purchasers evolve.

Faculty and staff who use DVD/CDs in their work or in a classroom have two options with their next computer purchase:
1. Submit content to CLA's DCL3 (Digital Content Library).
2. Purchase a portable external DVD/CD unit when ordering new laptop.
This change does not affect any current computers, only future CLA standard configuration Dell purchases.

Relationship managers are available to assist with questions and solutions.
