    Before i buy a dvd recorder i am wondering just how quickly things will move on and outdate my machine. My main question regards discs. Do the current systems have the facility to record dual layer disks??

    cheers

    No - none of the current machines can record dual layer DVDRs.

    The current batch of DVD recorders will have a reasonably short lifespan - the new optical formats are fast approaching. But that's not to say your equipment will become 'out of date' - just that if you only upgrade every 4 or more years then the odds are that your next recorder will be BluRay/HD-DVD rather than DVD-RAM/-RW/+RW. Certainly there are some excellent machines available now that will last a good many years...
