    Who else here thinks the superdrive is overkill for the consumer market? I mean it really is a great option, but its time will come in a year or so, just not now.

    Hey, why not!

    If you want to pay for the high end iMac, why not! Most people will not, because of the price tag...but I do agree that the combo drive is much more practical!

    In all the iDVD demos Jobs is always making DVDs to send to family members or friends. DVD burning is obviously part of Apple's consumer strategy. I predict by MWNY '03 every new mac will have a superdrive.
