CD Read and write speed compared to DVD Read and write speed & Graphics chipsets??

  1. Guys, a real basic question. I am looking at buying a new machine and have a choice of DVDRW/CDRW or DVDRW. The CD write and read speed (16 and 24) appears alot quicker than the DVD write and read speed (4 and 8). Is this a true comparison i.e. the CD reads 4 times quicker than the DVD or am I missing something. Will be using the laptop for a lot of CD reading for itunes and this is an important factor in my decision. All guidance appreciated. Cheers.

    On a side note anyone know what the differance is between these two graphics chipsets?? i.e. which is better or are they pretty much the same

    Gaphics chipset - Intel 855GM NVIDIA Ge Force FX go 5200
    Mem Size - 64mb 64mb
    Mem type - Shared Dedicated
