    It can be useful for computer users to be able to use the disc drive on their Xbox One, and Playstation 4 to open files stored on a disc on a Desktop PC or laptop computer which does not have a blu-ray or DVD rom drive rather than buying a separate USB external disc drive which they may use only a few times a month or less.

    A lot of new and cheaper laptops, and desktop computers no longer come with disc drive. But, most mainstream home game consoles still have a Blu-Ray Disc drive except for the Nintendo Switch which uses game cartridges and memory cards.

    To really make laptops compact these days the makers are sacrificing both the side keypad and the disc drive, which is kind of sad.

    It is sad that laptop don't have Blu-Ray disc drives, and keypads to save money on parts, and make a laptop thinner.

    I think some laptop makers mainly make laptops thinner, so they break faster after the warranty because of heat damage to the CPU, Battery, RAM, and motherboard from heat getting trapped in the laptop, and less protection from drops to the floor compared to thicker laptops which maybe more likely to survive a fall on a hard floor like a wooden floor.

    Electronics these days are not built to last a long time, and they seem to fall apart, or break easily if you are not careful.
