    food for thought here. i owned a 21.5 3.06 core 2 duo imac, and recently sold to upgrade to the core i3

    besides the significant speed bump, especially when playing games, there looked to be no other notable changes at all (expected).

    however, i've been using it for a couple days now and noticed one thing!

    when waking from sleep or booting up all together, the DVD drive does not make a sound! no ejection sound or anything at all (yes it works).

    anyone else experiencing this? the first few times i tried to wake from sleep i pushed my button like 5 times because i didn't hear that sound so i thought it wasn't waking up lol.

    oh and lastly, love my magic trackpad, :apple:props

    I think that's what happened with the SuperDrive Firmware Update 3.0 that was released in December 2009.
    My MacBook Pro from October 2008 no longer make the drive noise when waking up or booting up anymore either. :)

    I guess you notice it now because your old iMac didn't have this update, and now it's built-in as part of new systems.

    I applied all available updates to my Mac Mini 3,1 and it still has the optical drive hiccup at boot time (but not when making from sleep).
