    I posted recently about getting a SSD. I will get an Intel X25-M 80GB and use an optibay to house my 500GB where the superdrive is.

    I already have a slim Samsung USB DVD burner I bought a few years ago to remedy to the Superdrive's inability to burn anything else than 10$ a pop Kodak DVDs.

    Anyhow, my point is that I won't need the Superdrive at all anymore.
    I have seen it sells for about 200$ on eBay.

    Should I sell it or not?
    What happens if I need servicing on my Mac (warranty ends in Sept-2010) and I don't have the original Superdrive anymore?

    you could just sell it once the warranty expires?

    But if the price drops because a newer version of Superdrive comes around then I would have lost money.
    I have tight budget for my geek needs as you can imagine :D

    You seem like your leaning towards selling it ... Go with your gut feeling.

    I don't want to get told my Mac can't be serviced because I don't have the Superdrive to put back in it anymore...

    If your strapped for cash then sell it.. otherwise it sounds like you have good reasons to keep it.
