    Where is the cheapest place to get a MacBook Air SuperDrive for the new Macbook Air 13" I ordered? I don't care if it is used or refurbished either. Thanks guys!

    If you don't mind a used one, ebay is probably your best bet.

    *throws "eBay" "used" "okay" "probably" and "don't mind" into a blender and puts the results in here*

    try craigslist. that way you can meet with the seller locally to see it in person before purchasing.

    if you want retail, MacMall is your best bet. there are also refurbs at the apple store online for as much as $250 off when they're in stock. they have stock of the 2010 models right now, too. just keep in mind your savings may vary based on your local sales tax percentage... you could find that buying from MacMall is cheaper than an Apple Store refurb plus tax depending on the amount of the discount.

    They are discussing a super drive not a MBA

    Apple lowered the price on the MBA SuperDrive to $79.00...it is (according to what I've read) a newer version than the original MBA SuperDrive...I've also read of people using much less expensive eternal optical drives successfully...
    I bought the Apple drive and have been very happy with it...

    If you have a Frys near you, you might want to see if they have the HD XBOX 360 optical drive that failed to beat blu-ray. It was dirt cheap since they were trying to get rid of them.
