The guy I got the first MacBook Air from approached me recently. His roommate, the original owner of the MacBook Air, was cleaning up and had discovered her Apple Superdrive. This is a little external DVD reader and burner specifically for the MacBook Air. She had no more use for it, so gave it to him. He has no use for it, so he wanted to turn it into cash. He wanted $40, I offered $10, we settled on $15. He gets spending money, I get a Superdrive. I plugged it in to make sure it worked, and my MacBook Air immediately started playing a movie. A chick flick. I ejected it. I returned the DVD to him.
It works. I knew it could read DVDs, and I burned a data disk onto a DVDROM, so it's good. I don't really have a lot of use for it, but I have it, just in case.
