New Superdrive

Al et al,

Does anyone know, by now, if Apple are planning to upgrade the Superdrive in the relevant latest range G4's?

Thanks

Pioneer, manufacturer of Apple's SuperDrive, has announced a new double speed version of the CD and DVD writing device.

Successor to the DVR-A04, which Apple currently deploys in many of its Power Mac, iMac and eMac models, the DVR-A05 gives double writing speed across the range of DVD and CD media.

The higher speeds are achieved with a new writing pick-up and new laser driving technology. There is also a new liquid crystal tilt mechanism that enables better performance with unevenly thick or curved discs.

The drive will be available in November, with a retail price of around $299 (£190). It is not known whether Apple will be using the mechanism in future products.Simon Aughton
