    Lots of options at OWC. I've purchased many upgrades from them.

    Many of pioneer's drives will work, I used to have an un-supported drive in my old PowerMac G4, it worked via a little software hack (The name eludes me), however Apple eventually added the drive to their G5's, so it worked flawlessly in the end.
