my friend reconmended i add a second for easier burning
I considered it, but ultimately decided against it to leave room for Blu-Ray when available.
What I'm really curious about is whether or not there are still two SATA ports on the motherboard. Eh, I'll probably just order my MP next Tuesday with the second superdrive, and may rig up ESATA in the future since I really don't want to deal with it.
Unless you plan on doing a fair amount of burning, I would say not. You would only need it if you are planning on doing consecutive burning or burning many copies of a single thing, and even then, I do not see the need for it. And I don't see how it would make burning easier, possibly even more complicated.
While I haven't personally looked, to do somthing to prevent people from adding another one later would cost a lot more so I'm pretty sure you can add one yourself later.
will the superdrive work in a pc? i guess i can always take it out.
I think superdrive is just a generic apple name for a DVD-RW drive.
Aren't both SuperDrives on the same IDE chain and if so, is there enough bandwidth to burn two discs at maximum speed and at the same time?
