    I just ordered my SSD to find that my SuperDrive has crapped out. It takes DVDs but chokes on them... how annoying... :(

    Anyway... where can I find a replacement superdrive for cheap?

    short answer: You don't. They are expensive. $80 is as low as I have seen.

    I matched an old MacBook I had with a refurb super drive I found on eBay. It worked great.

    So ebay is my best bet then? Hmm... I picked up an LG external today for 60 bucks... might just be better off using that. I bought the external case for the Macsupdate SuperDrive replacement HDD bracket. Probably waste of 17 bucks. :-/

    I got mine from OWC. Can't remember how much I paid for it.

    Anyone know a good cheap place that sells MBP parts that were stripped from broken machines?
