I'm waiting on the next update of the powerbooks but i would like other peoples views on whether its best to buy one with the combo drive, superdrive or a combo drive with an external dvd writer. Looking at the prices i could save money as well if i go with an external and the external is faster at writing. But i fancy the all-in-oneness of the superdrive, but its speeds put me off especially when a combo drive is faster at burning cd's than a superdrive. Also ther is less to carry around, but i know i won't carry the external drive alot, still it is a point to make as i don't enjoy alot of clutter around here. While i have the money to buy either i would like to save some as well and have that flexability.
