OWC, or Other World Computing
, is notorious for pumping out upgrades when companies refuse to do so themselves -- particularly Apple
. Thus, it's no shock to see it offer up faster internal SuperDrives (DVD burners) for Apple's 13" MacBook and 15" MacBook Pro.
The new OWC Mercury SuperDrives offer faster burn speeds than factory – up to 8X DVD, 6X DVD-DL (Dual-Layer 8.5GB), 5X DVD-RAM, and 24X CD burn speeds with support for DVD+/-R/RW, DVD+/-R DL (Dual-Layer), DVD-RAM, and CD-R/RW media. The upgrade kits function fine with all machines purchased from 2006 and up, even with the "older style" MacBook / MacBook Pros that came before the current "unibody" design.
