Slim slot-in optical drive for Fractal Node 804, help!

I've decided to use the Fractal Node 804 (http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/node-series/node-804) to build a setup and would like to utilise the option of a optical drive in it. That requires a slim slot-in optical drive, but I'm having trouble finding any that are stupidly expensive. Am I missing something?

One possible option may be the Panasonic CW8124 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-CW-8124-C-internal-Combo-Powerbook/dp/B005FE7720/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1425991825&sr=1-1&keywords=Panasonic+CW-8124-C). This is listed as being for Apple iMac, is there any reason why it wouldn't work in a PC?

I'm in Germany, that doesn't appear to be available here or anywhere in Europe.

No worries, I should have said my location in the original post.

You'll prolly need a sata drive as there's no ide ports on the mobo (from your saved build, if that's current still), there seems to be conflicting reports as to whether an apple drive will work in a pc, but maybe with a small installer, see https://www.google.com/search?q=appleoddinstaller

I gave up on the Node and decided to go for the Bitfenix Phenom with a cheap external DVD reader.
