Other World Computing (OWC) announced Tuesday faster Mercury internal SuperDrive replacement kits for MacBook Pro 17-inch models. The new upgrade kits are priced at $89.99 and $104.99 respectively.
OWC claims the drive is the exact same kind that Apple uses; it works with Finder disc burning, iTunes, iDVD, Apple DVD Player, Roxio’s Toast, and CharisMac Discribe.
Installing a replacement optical drive in a 17-inch MacBook Pro can be tricky. Other World Computing includes step-by-step instructions for the do-it-yourselfer; alternately, the company also offers installation service if you’d rather not risk it.
