I'm trying to decide which MacBook to buy. If I choose to purchase the MacBook without the SuperDrive, would I be able to transfer files to my PC to burn a DVD? How about files created in iDVD?

Gah! Plymouth
You can attach an external DVD burner instead of getting the superdrive. Which may be more expensive than just getting the internal (not sure).

The Superdrive is worth the extra money. Believe me.

I was going to buy the base model, but at the end I got the black MB (not for the superdrive, I thought that I would never use it). But now I realize how helpful is to burn DVD's in the laptop and not having to go trough the problems of passing it to your PC or another Mac.

It is better to get the superdrive. Not only is it cheaper but with it, it means that you dont need to carry around an external one for when you need it.

Are you in the habit of burning DVDs? I've used at least a couple of computers with DVD burners (one Mac, one PC), and I rarely if ever used the DVD burner. So when it came time to buy a MacBook, I bought the lowest-end modeld without SuperDrive. In 6 months of owning the MacBook I've never once burned a DVD or even a CD.
