No it does not have DVD player.
I had a very bad experience with this device. My laptop was defective the moment I got it. I send it back to ASUS they did not fix it and just sent it back to me. Had to contact the customer service many times (at least 40-50 email and phone calls) to fix my laptop. Long story short, I purchased my laptop on April 23rd and till today (July 4th) only used my laptop for about 1 month! for the rest of the time it has been traveling back and forth and still at this moment I am answering your question with my DELL laptop because I have not got the ASUS back from the second round of repair yet.
