    The "new" Apple USB SuperDrive will only support the current
    Mac Mini, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

    To put it another way this USB SuperDrive will only work with
    Macs without built-in optical drive and
    Macs not being able to optional built in an optical drive.
