    So I decided to actually sit down and start burning some of my CD’s to my iTunes library and noticed that the Superdrive in the 2011 13” MBP is noticeably quieter than previous models. I’d previously had both a 2010 15” and a 2009 13” and the loading/unloading noise of each (as with past models too) was somewhat sick sounding. Anyone else notice this or is it just me? I don’t know if they went to another manufacturer or what, but it was certainly immediately noticeable to me.

    Not that it’s a big deal, but I’ll take a quieter-sounding computer any day of the week, figured I'd see if this was isolated or others have noticed this?

    I didn't notice any difference between my '11 MBP's SuperDrive, the one in my '09 MBP, or the external Apple SuperDrive I used to have with my MBA.
