Macbook Air SuperDrive works on powerbook G4!

Just want to let you guys knows...

the gut inside the external macbook air superdrive, would bolt right into internally, work natively, without modification, on my powerbook G4 12".

That's 1/3 the price of apple asks for, plus it is from apple (if that matters to you), and it is MUCH faster than my original superdrive!

I believe this would apply to the rest of the powerbook family, but not the macbook/pro family because they use a much skinner profile drive
