    Im thinking of upgrading the combo drive on my 17'' intel iMac to a superdrive.

    Any idea where I can purchase the drive, and does it take a lot of work to install it on my own?



    thanks

    seriously tricky task. you can get the drive from OWC or ebay or ? but taking the new imac apart is a task for someone that is really good at computer repair, or apple, or a repair provider. unless you have some great hardware skillz, get a firewire external. easier to install (plug in cable, done!), doesn't void the warranty, and is much faster in actual use besides!

    best of luck.
