I am considering a PC purchase in the near future. I notice that Dell doesn't offer a CDRW and Zip drive combination (it's one or the other). Seems to me that the zip drive would offer more conveinence as far as compatibility of use with other computers (i.e. taking from home and using at work or elsewhere), but the CDRW offers more storage capacity at a significantly reduced cost per disk purchase.
My question for the group is... Which of the two offers the fastest access times?
Sure wish Dell offered both on a PC, but their technical support said that it was "a cabling issue" that didn't allow them to install both on a single PC. Your thoughts?
