There is still a considerable demand for laptops with DVD drive in Canada. There are many reasons why a lot of people still like to go for a laptop with DVD rather than one without one. In this article, we will discuss the reasons why a DVD drive is still useful in laptops.

While it is totally possible to install the operating system using a USB flash drive, it is somewhat complex for the non-tech savvy people. Same goes for applications like Office, Photoshop and so on. Many still find it easiest to install software using a DVD drive.
2) Movie Watching – A lot of movies are still available on DVD drives. Many of us have old movies on DVD. While you can rip a DVD and store it on your computer, it is still much more convenient to watch the movie straight from DVD. By the way, if you are into DVD movie watching, consider getting a laptop with full HD display since that gives you crisper movie experience.
3) Software Backup – Windows still asks you to insert a DVD drive to make a complete backup of the system. That is why you should consider going for a laptop with DVD drive if you want to make easy backups of entire system.
