I agree, don't bother with DVD. I'd rather have extra bay that holds another SSD. I hadn't looked at them since I bought a Samsung 2.5" SSD for my old desktop, to boost performance. My new desktop, and most portables, take a SSD in a form factor that looks like a RAM stick. It takes minimal space on the motherboard, and it's way cheaper than the old SSD drives. If you get a DVD containing software that MUST be installed from a DVD drive (rare nowadays), you can rip the DVD to an ISO format (disk image). There are free players that mount that ISO, and it looks just like a DVD to the system. An exception is copy protected stuff.
P.S. I installed a high performance SSD stick in my older ASUS laptop and mounted it as C: drive, the original slow HD, I had the system mount as a D: data drive. My laptop went from SLOWWW to very acceptable in performance. It added another 2-3 years lifespan for $150.
