how long does it usually take to get the newest superdrive into the powerbooks?

Wont happen for a long time, they lowered the 2x rating of the 17" to 1x because of un reliability when burning when the laptop is moving. I think they should have some sort of gyro sensor that lowers the burn speed if you move the computer, and raises it when you are plugged in and stationary. Oh well.

I'd settle for 2X. I decided not to get a SD in my new 12" PB because of horrid memories of staying up all night to finish a project on 1X media (DVD-R provider promised it'd burn at 2x).:mad:
