    Hello,
    Can anyone recommend a good trusty retailer where to buy a superdrive for my powerbook g4 at a very reasonable price. I've seen them for sale on ebay for around £50 but not to sure about buying on there?
    Many Thanks!

    :)

    Not sure about Uk, but in the us
    macsales.com

    You might have to look at say uk versions of mac magazine web sites, such as macworld.

    Ebay (choose a reputable seller with lots of good feeback from buyers, if they have 30,000 positive responses they cant be a scammer)

    Amazon

    I used this place for my HD, very thorough website, very helpful guide to what you can do with your mac.

    They seem to recommend avoiding DIY'ing the superdrive like the plague, but they offer the service of doing it for you.
