Will this software be available for other Macs as well?

Like can I use the Remote Drive feature on my Mac Book Pro?

Or will this feature just be for Mac Book Air?

And how do they connect to your other computers? WiFi?

I dont think it will be available for the Macbook Pro...its a feature that only the macbook air will need to use...why would it make a difference if you already have an optical drive?

just put the disc in and mount it over bonjour on another computer. Remote disc is just a front end for that.

only reason i can think of is if someone got a combo drive and needed to burn a dvd.

Anyone know if the remote optical drive function is purely limited to program installs or does it work like a full fleged networked drive?
