And at least twice as much money.  Or at least that was my experience when
I bought an _internal_ SCSI DVD drive to go in my E450.

I know the laptop drives do work in those systems but I can't recall what
the name of the connecting kit is for them at the moment.  You need the
little back-board and the ribbon cable to do it.
