Here is the information I was able to find. iBook's Combo burns CD-R at up to 24x, burns CD-RW at up to 10x, reads DVD at up to 8x, and reads CD-ROM at up to 24x.

The Super on the PowerBook burns CD-R at up to 16x, burns CD-RW at up to 4x, reads DVD at up to 8x, and reads CD-ROM at up to 24x. It also burns DVD-R at up to 2x (the major cabability difference between the two drives).
