What kind of video card is in the laptop? I know Dell does make blu-ray drives for their laptops but the video card would be the kicker I would think.

If you're wanting one that's internal, it'll have to be made by Dell specifically for your laptop. Otherwise, you'll be looking for an external drive.

Given those specs, I'd think it would play just fine.

Unless it's a slot loader, any drive should PnP

The problem about my laptop is it doesn't have array that opens you just put the disc in the side. Looks like external for me. Reccomendations?
