Unfortunately, the 'SuperDrive' model is the only one with these updated specs but I have no use for a SuperDrive. It's slow and it cripples the CDRW speed as well. I would buy it with a 32X DVD/CDRW combo drive in a heartbeat. Reply 3 of 7 overhope Posts: 1,123member August 13, 2002 12:33PM Well, you don't have a use, don't buy it!

I would like an 800MHz eMac with a 60GB HD and a nice and fast Combo Drive - but I can't buy one. The low end just doesn't cut it for me. I wouldn't mind the SuperDrive feature if it burned CDs fast.
