The first will only read DVDs and write CDs

The second will read and write both CDs and DVDs.

The second is the better option.

Thank you so much for telling me this, I would have probably bought the wrong one, they dont make it too clear for people like me....all the best

IF you want to post a link to the machine you are looking at with dell, someone may be able to advise on how best to spend your money.

Also, take a look at the dell deals:

One last hint: you probably can save a hundred pounds or so by changing the warranty to "collect and return"
