    The retina display mac does NOT have a Super Drive built-in. You can either share a drive from an existing iMac or you will need a USB Super Drive to play discs.

  • The new MacBook Pro Retina display does not have a built in super drive; therefore, you would need to purchase one unless you will only need to use DVD/CD when you are near another computer with a super drive. If this is the case then you can access your DVD/CD wirelessly. I recommend the super drive though, it has worked great for me.

  • The MacBook Pro with Retina Display does not have an optical drive. So if you need to play discs you will need to get the Super Drive.

  • A MacBook Pro with retina display does not have a disk drive you must buy the super drive.

  • I have the 13" Macbook Pro with Retina Display and it does not have a disc drive. I had to purchase the USB Superdrive and I absolutely love it. It's worth the money without a doubt.

  • No, unfortunately it does not have a disc drive installed.

  • no the macbook with retina display doesent have one thats what makes it thin and lighter

  • No it dosent because they are trying to make it weigh less and because it has a lot of ports on the side.

  • YOU have to buy one.
