Dedicated external CD drive for ripping CD's?

    When I get my G5 I plan on reripping all my CD's (couple hundred) to Apple Lossless. Would it be wise to get a cheap, external CD drive and use that for ripping my entire collection instead of the wear I would put my internal drive through by going 1 CD after another? A bonus to that would be to also make it easier when copying CD's I wouldn't have to make an image of it first.

    I know they're built to last but it would suck to have something on the drive break because I was putting it through constant inserts & ejects one after another.
