I ahte to use the word flaw because they are such nice machines, HOWEVER: If you have two optical drives and one eject key...how does that work? Mine always get confused between my CD-R and my DVD drive, so how does this work on the new powermacs? Any ideas?

well, you could control-click on each disk and eject it, or drag said disk to the trash. As far as empty drives go, my bet is on shift-eject or command-eject. I'm sure this problem was brought up in the testing, its pretty obvious and fairly easy to fix.

Also, the f12 could function as eject for one drive, while eject controls the other.

toast titanium allows you to manually eject any optical drive, even if nothing it in it

just thought i'd put it up since he hasn't yet :)
