    Afternoon all,

    When I purchased my 27" iMac last October, I ordered it with a USB Superdrive. I currently have mine on the pedestal under the mac. Where have you placed yours?

    Cheers

    When I use it a lot, it goes on top of my Mac Mini (2011). When I'm not using it, I put it in my top desk drawer. I still wish it was built in. I think Apple ditched the optical drive a couple years too soon.

    I picked up my first iMac in 2012. But forgot to add the SuperDrive to my basket.
    Anyway I never needed one so never ordered one. I did get one for free from work a few months ago. I burnt a CD for when I can't be bothered to connect my phone.
    And like yours, it lives on the iMac foot.

    In a pocket of my laptop bag. I probably use it twice a year, on average.

    On top of my Mac Mini which I use as a server/test system. I have another somewhere in a drawer too. Can't actually remember the last time I used it. I have an Asus Blu Ray drive around too somewhere.

    It's not like they're really expensive. In fact, it sort of amazed me that Apple sold it for that price.

    Beside my MBA on my desk. And, yes, quite often plugged in to the MBA (as I still buy CDs, and watch DVDs).
