It would be a lot cheaper to just buy the CD version and not buy any extra drives. That would only cost us $50.
Oh right you going for the reader, not writer, I misunderstand. However I found 16x Samsung DVD-ROM drive for $6 with free shipping at pricewatch, I think that is real bargain. So you can spilt $3 from you and $3 from your brother to pay for bargain DVD-ROM drive.

$3+$3+$70= $76 to play HL2, save $48
