I've looked at this on amazon, but it requires two usb chords.

Can anyone recommend what you guys use for a external solution?
Apple superdrive is too overpriced...

I have the LG GP08NU6B and it uses one USB and works great with my new MBA 2011. I paid about $55 at Best Buy.

I've got the samsung in your link and it only needs one lead on my MBA. You only need two if the USB power is low.

If the USB port does supply enough power in the first place (not the case with the new MBA )
