No, You can't play any Cds, Dvds, or any other disc devices.
I sugest MacBooks. They might be expencive but they work to the bone. Where the reccomedations are this is what a MacBook looks like. I don't reccomend the item, I reccomend the picture of the MacBook to you.

No, unless you purchase an external DVD player to work via USB. As for whether or not it will be powerful enough to effectively operate the DVD player AND smoothly playback the movie, I don't know. A RAM upgrade would be a great idea if that is your intention.

This computer does not have a CD, DVD or Blu-ray drive built in. It is designed to install software and watch videos downloaded from the internet instead of from a CD or DVD. This keeps the size and weight small for optimal portability.

With the wide availability of broadband internet, USB Flash drives and SD cards, the need for optical drives has greatly been reduced. However, if you need this function, there are external optical drives that can be purchased and attached via USB. This can provide a way to use CDs or DVDs on this computer.

In my experience, right out of the box, the LT did not stream Netflix very well. The answer is to up RAM to 2 G or do what I did and use a flash memory card as a ramdisk. I use a Sandisk Ultra 8 gig and it smoothed out Netflix streaming wonderfully

The 6 cell battery in this model is rated at 8 hours. Of course that would depend on what applications you’re running. Applications that heavily use the processor will drain power faster than applications that don’t. Unfortunately, we have no numbers on what the stand-by time would be if the computer was fully charged and then put into sleep mode until the battery was dead.

This netbook comes equipped with a 48 Watt 4400 mAh 6-cell Li-ion battery pack with 8-hour battery life. Your computer's battery life may vary depending on computer settings and applications or features launched. The listed battery life is for individual battery packs tested with MobileMark 2007 in productivity test mode, and browsing websites via wireless connection. All batteries' maximum capacity will diminish with time and use.

based upon being a computer tech and basing on experience on a Acer One netbook to acess and upgrad the ram and/or HDD you need to pretty much gut the thing the RAM slot will be located on or around the bottom ot the motherboard (yes you have tot ake the motherboard out) the had drive should also come out with the moterboard as the HDD Cage is mounted to the motherboard itself

Yes, but only for traveling. It's too small, and the keyboard is too compactly set, to allow comfortable hour-after-hour, day-after-day use. But it can't be beat for occasional, on-the-road use (in the air, waiting at airports, in hotel rooms, etc.).

The machine comes loaded with a light version of MS Office (Word, Excel, etc..). Starter allows you to create and edit Office documents and does have some of the more basic functions of the full Office Versions. If you want the full version of Office (with full functionality) than you need to buy a key card (basically a license without discs) or you need to buy one of the retail versions of the product (with discs) if you have an external USB DVD drive.

Windows 7 Starter Edition is preloaded on the Netbook when you get it. I suggest you pickup a Windows Anytime Upgrade card at your local Best Buy, they can offer you a discount on this purchase , with the purchase of a netbook. Right now the last discount I saw was $20 off a Windows Anytime upgrade with the purchase of a netbook.

The upgrade works without a CD/DVD Drive all the files are preloaded on your Netbook for the different versions of Windows. Once you enter the upgrade key your computer starts the upgrade process and it lasts for 15 minutes at least and may take a little longer depending on your operating environment. You have to be online throughout the whole upgrade process, including product activation.

While Windows 7 may work with 1GB of RAM, you would have to disable the Aero interface. 2GB is better for Windows 7.
