It can be used in the iMac G5 and Intel iMac ranges**, 12" & 14" iBook G4, Titanium (replacement brackets & cable may be required for earlier Titanium models), Aluminium 12", 15" & 17" PowerBooks and in the MacBook Pro 17". Because this drive is a direct manufacturers replacement for the earlier Matsushita drives Apple fitted in these laptops, the original optical bezels will fit these new drives.
This drive is not suitable for the 13" MacBook or 15" MacBook Pro as these laptops use a thinner format drive (UJ-857/UJ-867/GSA-S10N).
This drive can be used with OSX 10.2 or higher in conjunction with disk burning software such as Toast. Disk buring is directly supported within OSX 10.4 or later. There is no manual, software or mounting hardware included.
** Bezels in iBook G4 and iMac G5/Intel and manufacturer specific so if this drive is to replace one from a different manufacturer, you will also require a matching bezel.
