save your money,this is the absolute worst computer that i have ever owned. no,most laptops don't have a a disc drive,i have had this computer over 2 weeks,i already went to beast buy,they weren't very helpful.i told them over 3 times,the cursor went missing." it doesn't hold a charge,it is the biggest piece of junk i have ever owned.
oh,right,i even had to call hp,because geek squad never picked up the phone,i was on hold for way too long.
this laptop deserves a huge minus.
