Hi. I wonder if anyone has been down this route? After a lot of faffing around with retina MBPs I finally ordered a cMBP (2.6/8/750 HDD) which I intend to beef-up to 2.6/16/512 SSD + 750 HDD (swapping the internal superdrive for the HDD). Does anyone know if the USB Superdrive that is meant for the rMBP would work for this config? (I am aware that under normal circumstances it would not (the drive is designed for Macs without internal super drives). I already have one you see (which I bought when I had the retina) and thought that the process of removing the internal DVD might allow the external DVD to work. Thanks.
