    Will this software be available for other Macs as well?

    Like can I use the Remote Drive feature on my Mac Book Pro?

    Or will this feature just be for Mac Book Air?

    And how do they connect to your other computers? WiFi?

    sure...


    I dont think it will be available for the Macbook Pro...its a feature that only the macbook air will need to use...why would it make a difference if you already have an optical drive?

    damn canadians...

    just put the disc in and mount it over bonjour on another computer. Remote disc is just a front end for that.

    Anyone know if the remote optical drive function is purely limited to program installs or does it work like a full fleged networked drive?
