    Could I use an external Bluray drive with the new MBA as long as it is compatible with OSX?

    I know the MBA's have the capability of using an optical drive on another computer. Is it possible to create an audio CD from the MBA's library and write it to a disc on another computer?

    Both should be possible. You can rip and burn Blu-Rays, I think but there is no straightforward playback of BRs.

    To use other Mac's DVD drive, just enable DVD sharing on that Mac
