A necessary item, I guess

Chris, MacMall

  • 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

Chuck Swaim, MacMall
23 December 2010
  • 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. ...

Not so Super?

John K, Apple
26 October 2014
  • Summary: With the withdrawal of disc drives from newer Macbooks & iMacs, I felt obliged to buy one of these to install a variety of software on both Mac OSX & in the Bootcamp Win7 partition. All worked fine. It's also very transportable, being light, thin, and no external power supply required. However...... The simple task of playing music CDs, in order to rip them to iTunes, appears to be a little too much for these drives.
