Technology is evolving so quickly that with each passing day, something or the other becomes obsolete. However, sometimes we require older technologies in order to access data. A great example of something like this is the Optical Disk Drive or ODD. For users who have a lot of data that needs to be to transferred through CDs or DVDs, the ODD is an essential feature. Not sure which laptops have ODDs built-in? Here are a few that should do the trick. 

Lenovo V130

The Lenovo V130 is a DOS (Disk Operating System) based device, which makes it ideal for any supported operating system. The device runs on a 7th Gen Intel core i3-7020UN processor, which is quite decent. If you want to access movies and shows that have been stored on CDs, you’ll be glad to know that this laptop has a 15-inch anti-glare IPS display with a 1366×768 pixel resolution and 220 Nits, making it perfect for your needs. It has 4GB DDR4 RAM and 1TB HDD storage. Don’t be afraid to munch on snacks while binge-watching because the laptop has a spill-resistant Accu-type gapless keyboard. Additionally, it has Dolby Audio supported stereo for clear and authentic sound quality, which should enhance your movie watching sessions. Additionally, it has one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HDMI, a 4-in-1 card reader, and a combined audio jack. 

Dell Vostro 3581

The Dell Vostro 3581 runs on a 7th Gen Intel Core i3-7020U with a base speed of 2.29GHz. It has 4GB DDR4 RAM and a 5400rpm 1TB HDD storage, which should ensure that you can save all the data you want. It has a 15.6-inch display with an integrated Intel graphics card that should let you play a few low-end games. Additionally, it has three USB ports, an HDMI port, one LAN port, one VGA port, one combined audio jack and an Optical Disk Drive. The device’s speakers are supported by Waves MaxxAudio Pro for clear and immersive sound quality, which should make this a good device to stream content on. 

Lenovo Ideapad 130

The Lenovo Ideapad 130 comes with an ODD, pre-installed Windows 10 OS and runs on a 7th Gen AMD A6-9225 dual-core processor with 2.6GHz base and 3GHz max clock speeds. It has a 15.6-inch anti-glare HD display with a 1366×768 pixel resolution for clear and bright images. The display comes with an integrated GFX graphics, which means that you may not be able to play very high-end games but most games on the lower end of the spectrum should run fine. The laptop has a 4GB DDR4 RAM with 1TB HDD storage, which should also help you to store all those games you like.  It also has Dolby Audio supported speakers for crisp sound quality, which is ideal for a theatre-like experience.

HP 250 G7
