Ok, I really need some help.
Does anyone know if you can install PC games, watch DVD's etc. on an 'Acer Aspire One Netbook Laptop'??
And if you can, does anyone know of any external CD/DVD drives that are compatible, as the laptop itself has no CD drive??
Any help/info would be greatly appriciated :)

These Acer Aspire units typically come with Linux and a solid state hard drive.
Putting Windows XP (or worse, Vista) on a solid state drive is asking for trouble as they only last a few thousand read/write cycles before they wear out. This can occur in under 12 months. They are available with mechanical hard drives as well which is a better solution.
Any external CD unit will be compatible - just plug it in a USB port.
