Asus Eee Getting an Optical Drive?

According do DigiTimes, the upcoming Asus Eee E1004DN will be the first Eee netbook to include an optical drive when it hits in mid-April overseas for about $550. Every time I fly, I'm amazed by how many people I see watching DVDs (not just digital files) on their laptops. So if these DVD-wielding Eees do come out, as ridiculous as they'd be, I'm sure that someone will be buying them. [Digitimes via CrunchGear]
