What's up with Apple. I read from somewhere a long time ago that Apple had "relations" with the Blu-Ray association or something like that. Why then are the Macs still behind in the "HD" game? This issue has been in my mind for quite some time now but I never really thought of it until my buddy bought his first blu-ray disc and popped it into his laptop and WOW! I was a little shy to show my macbook.
Blu-Ray is getting more and more popular these days. I'm not sure but does ANY Mac have the capability to play Blu-Ray/Burn Blu-Ray? Is it a hardware thing or a "driver" and software thing? (I'm guessing hardware) I have Vista on my computer too (don't flame me) and I wonder if I can play Blu-Ray there... hmm
Oh well.. Blu-Ray is just awesome, just wow, the quality is stunning. The audio, video.. OUT of THIS WORLD.. amazing

Yes, Apple is board member of Blu-ray association. As I have haerd about the rumors, it is the drives that are still too powerhungry and large. But I am sure it is right around the corner.

The drive is about a big as any other drive right now, about as long as older ones though, but that's about it.

I wonder if Apple will allow me to upgrade my Mac's optical drive if they eventually decide to put it into their "NEW MACBOOK" coming soon in aluminum.
