LaCie has announced the latest versions of its Portable DVD+/-RW Drive, designed by Sam Hecht, on sale now for £64.99.

With a "sleek black finish", the drive offers new multimedia burning solutions, with the claim of "allowing users to piece together sophisticated movie, music, and photo projects in a matter of minutes - creating customised CDs or DVDs wherever they go".

With Windows and Mac versions available, the Windows version comes with Creator Suite 10, while the combined Mac and Windows version comes with Toast 9 Basic, as well as Creator Suite 10.

Bus-powered, the 8x drive is less than an inch tall, weighs in at under a pound and gets LightScribe tech that allows users to burn labels directly onto CDs and DVDs with a laser instead of a printer.
