Hi, guys - I'm about to lay down money for a Lite-On DVD burner, but I just discovered in the product description that it requires Windows XP (not a problem) and 1.3 ghz or higher (possible problem). My machine is 1.10 ghz so my initial thought is that it's slower than the required 1.3, or am I wrong? (My sporadic moments of brilliance have never remotely been associated with math.) And if it is indeed slower, does it matter that much? If anyone's interested, the model I'm lusting after is the Lite-On SHM-165H6S.

Any and all help is, as always, vastly appreciated and treasured for life! :whistling:

Oh yes, one more thing - if, indeed, the Lite-On needs more speed than my system can handle, can anyone recommend a reliable DVD burner that'll be happy with 1.10 ghz?

Thanx!

1.3Ghz on its own means nothing as it can correspond to one of at least four different type of actual processors.

All the recommendation is is a guideline, it should burn happily on your system provided you don't go for the maximum speed.

I'm sorry - Braindead here forgot to mention what type of computer she has. It's an AMD Athlon XP, if that's any help. So you're saying that as long as I don't max on power, everything should be fine. Thanks! That's very reassuring. :whistling:
