OWC Mercury

8X 12.7mm Internal DVD/CD Writer
For all Mac mini models
(G4 and Intel Models 2006-2007)

Mac / PC / DVD Multi Recorder / Rewritable
 
Do you have an Apple Mac mini or Late 2005 PowerBook G4 system? Drive not working right? Or, do you already have a Super-MultiDrive, but would like to burn faster? This is the ticket - and it supports the new 8.5GB Dual Layer Burning technology too!

The new OWC Mercury Super-MultiDrive Internal is compatible with all Mac mini models (G4 and Intel Models 2006-2007) and the PowerBook G4 "Late 2005 / Double Layer SD" systems.
This Optical Drive Solution Includes:
  • OWC Mercury Internal DVD/CD Writer
  • OWC Installation manual for Mac Mini Optical Drive installation.
OWC Note: This is the exact same type of Super-MultiDrive that Apple uses! You can install it into your Mac mini or PowerBook G4 yourself - Check out our installation videos for assistance!

For PowerBook G4 "Aluminum" systems, professional installation is highly recommended. If you would like professional installation, OWC offers that service too. Please contact us for more information.
