With the influx of new Macs sans optical drives, it seems only natural that the Apple USB SuperDrive would come in and fill the gap. This slot-loading 8X SuperDrive can handle your disk-based software installs and DVD / CD burning needs - including dual layer duties - with ease.
The unit is slated to work exclusively with the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, MacBook Air, and Mac mini computers. Its compact size and slim shape won't even be noticeable next to the sleek design lines of those three computers, and it will easily travel in a purse, shoulder bag, or briefcase.
There's also no need to lug around an extra power cord or cable. The unique design of the Apple USB SuperDrive implements a built in USB cable that attaches itself to the USB port on the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air or Mac mini, and powers itself through the port, whether your Mac is plugged in or running on battery power. No more frantic searching for cords at the last minute.
As essential to the Mac lineup as a mouse or track pad, the Apple USB SuperDrive is a portable powerhouse for burning and reading data.
You'll never have to worry about lost cables with the Apple USB SuperDrive. It connects to your MacBook Pro with Retina display, MacBook Air, or Mac mini with a single USB cable that's built into the SuperDrive. There's no separate power adapter, and it works whether your Mac is plugged in or running on battery power.
Whether you're at the office or on the road, you can play and burn both CDs and DVDs with the Apple USB SuperDrive. It's perfect when you want to watch a DVD movie, install software, create backup discs, and more.
Only slightly bigger than a CD case, the Apple USB SuperDrive slips easily into your travel bag when you hit the road and takes up little space on your desk or tray table when you're working.
