I've bought a MBA but the superdrives were sold out at the store. So I've came up with this solution. I created "dmg" of all my softwares and put them on an external USB drive, then hooked it up to the MBA to install the softwares. Its definately better/faster than using remote drive.

Just wondering how other MBA owers install softwares on their machine?

I just used the remote disc feature on my Vista laptop. Worked like a charm.
