    First time posting here but this is going to be my first Mac Mini. I was bummed to see the optical drive go. I was wondering for the people that will be getting a external optical drive which one are you getting? I have lots of cds that I will be ripping in iTunes so I will need to get one.

    Which ones have you tried?

    Which to stay away from?

    I heard some bad things about the Super Drive so just wanted to see if you can help me figure out which to get. I didn't know if some had problems connecting with the new Mac Mini.

    Thanks for reading!

    What bad things have you heard about the SuperDrive and where. I've got the MacBook Air SuperDrive which I plan on using with the new Mini and I've not had any problems with it.

    Mr. C.

    I was looking online and some reviews said its not that great. I was going to purchase one to try it out. Before I purchase one I wanted to see what others here thought on this topic.

    Thanks!

    Well it's been fine for me. Then again I don't use it very often, usually only when I need to install software on my MacBook Air which isnt often.
