I would assume so, see what interface he uses and then get a writer with the same interface (IDE or SATA). Someone here more knowlegable about dell compatibility might know more.

*edit*

I've never seen an SATA optical drive, but you never know.

Yep, it'll work. The compatibility issues arise when PSU/Case/Motherboard problems happen.

You can configure decent stuff on hp.com, but the premade choices do suck.
