The optical drive on my Macbook Pro (Build 9L31a) broke a couple of years ago and I have thus far managed to get around it. Now that iCloud is about to reign down on my OS 10.5, I need to upgrade via disk. Will the new Apple USB SuperDrive do the trick or do I have to have the internal drive replaced. Is there another drive out there that would be better than the SuperDrive?



MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2008), Mac OS X (10.5.8)
