Windows 8 laptop without a DVD drive? Pretty much any laptop will have a DVD optical-drive as standard, but a smaller palmtop might not, in which case pretty much any external USB DVD drive should work fine. Stick to the better known manufacturers and you'll have no problems regarding drivers or anything.

Any one will do. I have just got a Windows 8 tablet and attached an ancient DVD-RW drive to it via USB and it worked.

Aria co uk have slim Samsung external drives on offer for 21 at the moment. Look on the 'Super Specials' section.
