While it is normal for vendors to indicate that a device is "made for..." a certain segment of their product line, this has a different meaning with Apple. They use a custom controller in the drive that checks to see which computer it is being connected to. If it is not a MacBook Air, MBP Retina or Mac Mini, this drive WILL NOT WORK. The custom controller shuts it down.
I went to an Apple Store today to test if I could swap my MacBook Air Superdrive (which only works with...you guessed it...) for this new one. They tried connecting it to a random MacBook Pro (non-Retina) on display, and it would not even power up. We moved it to a MacBook Air to confirm the drive worked, and it was just fine. We tried yet another non-Retina MBP and it wouldn't work.
So unless you have one of the three Mac computers listed, do not buy this. Apple has programmed it not to work with your computer for no logical reason whatsoever.
