Hello everyone i just bought a new Macbook Pro and to many of you this may seem like a very silly question, but i just received news or rather a rumor that the Superdrives in these notebooks have a tendency to fail because of the weight of your right hand/arm resting right above the drive itself affecting some sort of component within the Superdrive.

Has anyone experienced such a problem or are familiar with what i am talking about?

Or has some jealous non-mac user thrown me for a loop?

A friend of mine with a 15" MBP had to send his in because the Superdrive failed a couple weeks after he got it. His new one has been working fine for a few months now. It would probably be a recall if the Superdrives failed because of it's location under the right hand rest.
