    G5 Superdrive
    Well the new G5s come with either the Sony or Pioneer drives.

    I got mine with the Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-106D.

    My question is...

    Apple says that it is a DVD-R/CD-RW right?

    Well, Pioneer says that same model is a DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW

    So what's the truth? Does Apple have one made just for them without the +?
    and if they do, why isn't a different model number?

    Here is a screenshot of the System Profiler...just incase you were wondering...
