I consider 14 and 15 inch laptops to be mini.

And many do. So yes.

If you look up the specs on whatever laptop your talking about it should tell you if it has an optical unit

Most laptops...

Generally have CD/DVD drives included. However, anything called a "notebook" or similar may not have a CD/DVD drive in order to keep a small footprint. Also, The Chrome type laptops, I used laptop here but again its called a notebook(or netbook) usually don't have CD/DVD drives. Regardless, the usual fix for CD/DVD access is the use of ext. USB CD/DVD drive on that port.

FYI, IMHO I haven't used the term "mini-laptop" for any laptop out there. As Robert stated maybe the laptop size is the clue, though 13in. or smaller fits that bill. I've always figured 14in. and above is in the typical laptop sizing. But, lets not get into too wordy here but I would think any laptop for sale will state its specs or wording it wants to known as, so I levae it at that.

I've Got A Sony 13" Ultrabook, No CD/DVD Drive

It's quite small, light and compact. So it depends on the make and model. Be sure to check the manufacturer's specs for your model before purchasing.

Hope this helps.
