Fastmac 8x SuperDrive

Fastmac today announced what it says is the first and only 8x SuperDrive upgrade for Apple's 13-inch MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pro notebooks. The new drive provides single-layer DVD burning at up to 8x speeds and dual-layer burning at up to 4X. The 9.5mm ultra slim slot loading 8x SuperDrive is built specifically for Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops with a chassis thin enough to fit inside the computers without modification. The drive replaces Apple's original slow speed Combo or SuperDrve with an entirely compatible plug-and-play internal drive that is eight times faster than the MacBook Pro's original optical drive. FastMac offers the upgrade as a user-installable kit, and provides professional installations within 24 hours. The drive self-installation upgrade is priced at $180, while 24-hour professional upgrades are available for $270. The company also offers combined hard drive upgrades from $100 (160GB) for 5,400RPM SATA drives boasting 8MB of data buffer cache.
