Lite-on has announced that HP has licensed its 18x DVD burner. The drive supports LightScribe label etching and will be HP’s new standard drive. It will be called the HPdvd940i and will be available in November. No word on pricing, but expect it to cost more than the $64 you can get the Lite-on for OEM.
Who needs to innovate when you can just brand someone else’s innovations? ;)
