Other World Computing satisfies the Mac user’s need for speed with its full line of Apple compatible internal and external burning solutions.

OWC offers internal ‘SuperDrive’ DVD and CD burners for the PowerMac G3, G4 and G5, eMac G4, iMac G4 and G5, Mac mini, G4 Cube and PowerBook G4. Internal drives start as low as $75 and feature up to 16X DVD (4.7GB per disc) burn speeds, up to 6X DVD Dual Layer (8.5GB per disc) burn speeds and up to 40X CD burn speeds.

Both bare drives and complete solutions featuring software and media are available. Instructions, including free Apple Quicktime movie installation guides, are available at OWC’s tech center for most systems.

External solutions also are available starting from $129.99 for virtually any Mac or PC that operates on FireWire or USB2 ports. All drive options can be viewed at

Compatible with popular software from Apple and third parties, OWC’s solutions are a great way to either add CD and/or DVD burning capabilities to a system currently without them, or to upgrade for faster operation from an existing drive

“Just like us, our customers are busy folks and today’s fast burners certainly can save a lot of time otherwise spent waiting around,” said Larry O'Connor, president of OWC. “Be it on the road with your PowerBook, or in the office with your tower, it’s nice to burn what you need quickly and without hassle.”

External drives are plug and play. Internal solutions are user installable with the help of OWC’s instructions, but OWC does offer installation services for those who may feel uncomfortable doing it themselves. Also, OWC offers up to a $90 rebate/trade for the optional return of an existing drive.
