People still use DVD drives(in other parts of the world). So why remove them?
I personally think there is still a market for PCs with DVD drives. In 3rd world countries, people still buy movies in DVDs, because the internet is too slow for downloading movies of any kind.
Also, as much as i tried resisting from mentioning this. In 3rd world countries, the most popular way to get games, Office and Windows is by buying pirated DVDs. I am not gonna delve deep into that since it is sorta bad.
Also, believe it or not, I had a teacher who would make us put PowerPoint presentations in CDs so her laptop wont get a virus...
