External CDRW with Nero?

Can anyone recommend a good external CDRW for £100 or under? Would this come with Nero software or would I need to buy this separately? Also, would this be compatible with any PC - I have an IBM Thinkpad T22.
Probably a stupid question, but i'd appreciate any responses.

dippie, I don't think you will get Nero with an external CDRW for that price.

Compatibility should not be a problem, CDRW should come USB connections so if your computer has USB then your burner will work.

how much should I expect to pay for Nero with an external CDRW?
Would any other software be as good as Nero at a slighlty cheaper price?
What makes of external CDRW should I be looking at?

If you dont intend to carry the rewriter around with you do what i did,and buy an external case that takes an ordinary rewriter,it will cost less than 70 quid for the lot.Iplug mine into the parrelel port,and it works fine.

Drab, where did you get your external case?
Can all internal CDRW be fitted into an external case? Am I likely to have a parallel port on my laptop?

I bought my case in a p.c shop in spain,so if they are here they are certainly there.Yes to both other questions.the parralel port is where you plug the printer in.
