    The new AlBooks have been fitted with the new superdrives from pioneer. I found the spec for the new 17" to include a 2x superdrive. what is the speed for the 12" AlBook and if it is slower can you max it out with a firmware upgrade? I heard somewhere that they had deliberately reduced some of the recording speeds because the firmware wasnt stable enough to run at higher speeds. Any comments?

    And finally...my e-mail from MCE, which offers a superdrive upgrade for previous powerbooks with 2x DVD-R speed...in other words full potential. Here's what they said:
