As the Apple Turns (appleturns.com) claims they are the only site that is reporting on Powerbooks with Superdrives

Uh... yyyyyeah. Well, there you have it, folks; at least one person (small and inexperienced though she may be) appears still to be expecting actual SuperDrives in the upcoming PowerBooks rumored to surface tomorrow, despite the fact that the entire Mac rumor community thinks otherwise. Ah, the wide-eyed naïveté of youth, yeah? Anya's apparent prediction of speeds of 800 MHz and 1 GHz are also slightly on the high side of the watercooler consensus, but it's the SuperDrive prediction that's so darned precious; it's almost like she's asking Santa to bring her one for Christmas

they were the first to use sarcasm too...

Really people, I don't really think they mean "THE ONLY ONE" to predict it, it's just a way of saying that not very many do, and that maybe they don't even since they have their newborn girl predict it!!

*laugh*

Generally, you can NOT safely use the smaller CD-R's in slot load drives.
