Why You Shouldn’t Replace A Broken Internal SuperDrive

FairerPlatform contends that if the SuperDrive optical drive in your Mac croaks, it’s smarter strategy not to replace it with another internal unit, but to get an external USB optical drive.

Why replace the internal SuperDrive when it’s highly unlikely your next Mac will ship with one? An external SuperDrive can serve over the long haul with several Macs.

FairerPlatform suggests the Patuoxun USB External Slot in DVD RW Drive Burner Superdrive For Apple MacBook Pro Air ($41.99, Amazon), or one of a nice range of external DVD drives from Other World Computing, starting at $49.
