OWC ships new SuperDrive

Other World Computing has announced new Mercury SuperDrive Internal Upgrade Kits for MacBooks and MacBook Pros. The drives burn at 8x speeds with DVD+/-R media, and at 6x using DVD+/-R-DL. 5x DVD-RAM and 24x CD-R burning are also possible. The new SuperDrives work in all MacBooks and MacBook Pros prior to the new unibody design, and come with an optional bundle including Prosoft Data Backup 3, NTI DragonBurn and 10 8x DVD-R discs.

OWC recommends Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, but offers a solution for earlier versions of Mac OS X. A Mercury SuperDrive retails bare for $150, with the bundle pushing the price to $160. A $25 rebate is available for people who send in their old, working optical drive after purchasing a Mercury upgrade.
