    Hey guys,
    I was wondering where is the best place to buy a replacement superdrive for my Macbook Pro Late 2008 Unibody 2.4ghz 15"?

    If I find out the drive's model number, can I just look on ebay for the replacement even though it doesn't specifically say its for the mac?
    So, when I receive the bare drive, I can just transfer the drive data cable, mounting screws and bracket?

    Any other suggestions of online retailers besides OWComputing (because they don't have the drive) or eBay?

    Thanks, Paul

    Thanks, I heard they were overpriced though. And any ideas for the above questions too?

    You can ind out the model of your superdrive at, about this mac>more info> then look under ATA. I replaced my superdrive from a new on that I got from ebay for less than 100 dollars. Hope that helps.
