    Hi,

    My superdrive died some time ago in my C2D macbook pro. This was their first release of the c2d mbp.

    I'm considering either getting an external or putting a new superdrive in.

    2 questions:

    Are the current superdrives any different then the ones in my machine? What are the basic specs of the piece I'm looking for?

    and, is this a part that is (somewhat) easily replaceable by the user, or would I need to get a professional to install it?

    Any and all help is appreciated as I'm trying to do this very soon! Thanks!

    I think if you have to ask, it's not something you should really do yourself. Take a look at an iFixIt guide for your model of Mac to see how complicated it may get.
