Portable DVD Players
It’s crazy but now most laptops don’t have disc trays. That shows how far the world has come since the dawn of the VHS tape. MacBook Airs don’t even have USB ports. But in the good old days, we depended on different systems to play external media. That’s why portable DVD players were so popular.
Parents loved them because they were a fantastic way to keep children quiet on a long journey. It also meant that they could watch another movie if they didn’t like what was on TV. But then laptops made life easier because they didn’t need to carry two systems. Now we stream everything because it’s the easiest thing to do (via Rolling Stone).
