A necessary item, I guess

Conclusion: I know you can get away using a networked CD drive, but I bought a MacBook Air and figured this was a good thing to have. I have used it several times and it is useful. I thought the quality of construction was a little sub-Apple, but its a nice product. I expected the aluminum to be the same quality as a mac notebook and its not.
Mac Mini Users --Only Works With Snow Leopard Server OS

Conclusion: My Mac Mini Intel Core Duo 1.66 Ghz’s disc drive died and I was looking for an inexpensive alternative to eek out a little more life in it, so I ordered an Apple MacBook Air SuperDrive. My Mac Mini’s operating system is just regular Snow Leopard. I embarrassingly got confused with fine print in the product entry when I read "Snow Leopard", but somehow missed "Server" in the compatible operating system description for use with a Mac Mini.
Summary: As other Apple products, the MacBook Air SuperDrive is very user friendly. Installation is painless. It works well for CD and DVD. I like it being external so that the MacBook Air Laptop can be very light. I do not use the SuperDrive frequently. ...
Summary: When you're out on the road, it's not so easy to borrow the optical drive of another computer. That's why I purchased the superdrive for my macbook air, plus I want to be able to watch dvds on it. It's lightweight and not bulky at all, but nonetheles...
I remember the day when these came with the computer!

Summary: Well I expected the Superdrive to be exactly that, lightning quick. Well it's not; whereas my old drive that actually came with the computer could burn (DVD) discs at x 16, this one only burns at x 8. The lead is very short and at £65, well, there are cheaper versions that could no doubt do a similar if not better job, come on Apple...!
