In this week’s poll, we’re asking if you still need an optical (ie CD/DVD drive) on your Mac. Some folks say that broadband Internet connections, the iTunes Store, the Apple TV, the iPad and such technologies eliminates the need for one.

The poll is located on the right hand side of the home page beneath the Macsimum Opinion column. In last week’s poll, we asked if you planned on buying ebooks on the iPad. Sixty-seven percent of you said “yes,” 7% said “no,” and 26% said it depended on the pricing.
