You want an internal one? If you already bought your mini and did not get a Superdrive pre-installed and now want one, why don't you opt for an external drive.

You can get an internal 8x here for 199.

You can have the Pioneer 8x dual-layer Superdrive (Apple supported/shipped - fits inside the Mac mini) for $119:

Well that may be worth it alone because my combo drive is pretty loud. When I go to turn on the mini the drive make a weird noise like the lens is going back and forth 3-4 times, it sounds like a camera advancing film. It makes tis same noise when the mini comes out of sleep.
