i Just bought a brand new mac mini 2011 base model ($599) and put in 4gbs of ram. hooked it up to my tv in my room through hdmi i bought this my a bunch of apple gift cards i was given for my 18th birthday, and i only paid $30 from my pocket. I'm using this mac as what i call a media base station. I'm using it to transfer all my media( pictures and video) to my hard drives. also i have a bunch of dvds on it that i can access through my apple tv in my living room 3) i use it to capture my xbox360 game plays. i was wondering besides an apple super drive is there a better drive out there, and if there is what would you recommend.
