    It’s more expensive but you can replace the internal drive:

    External drives are cheaper if that works for you. I haven’t used them but the cheap, slim USB burners are popular now. Make sure it will work with Macs and it looks like most of them use a double ended USB cable to be able to draw more power for burning disks so make sure that will work with your computer too. If it’s not really obvious that it’s going to work well get it from a local store that has a 30 day return policy.
