To avoid all confusion, you ought to provide the proper ( ) subordinating conjunction to the understood main clause. The "Yeah" really means "Yes, optical drives on computers are always one of the first components to fail." The clause that follows is composed of two subordinate clauses, but the first subordinating conjunction is left out (it's understood). The second subordinating conjunction is "unless." So to avoid confusion the sentence ought to read as follows:
"Yeah, because, unless you go with the tower, they're POS laptop drives."
And to be fully expressive (I love this stuff!), it would look like this:
"Yes, optical drives on computers are always one of the first components to fail because, unless you go with the tower, they're POS laptop drives."
Ya had to start this stuff up!
