    I want to buy and watch 1080p movies on my iMac. I can steal MKVs from torrent sites if I want, but I don't like to steal stuff off the Internets anymore (gettin' old I guess).

    I am presented with a dilemma. iTunes movies only go up to a measly 720p, and I'm pretty sure I can't play Blu-Ray videos on the integrated optical drive on the iMac.

    So, is there an online place to buy 1080p videos, or a USB/TB/Firewire compatible BluRay disk drive that I could buy and connect to my comp?

    Other thoughts? I am in no way open to the idea of going with 720p, so no need to suggest that kind of solution.

    EDIT: PS I have Windows 7 installed also, so I'm open to solutions involving the other OS.

    You could always pick up an external BluRay and then use http://www.macblurayplayer.com/.

    I'm looking to find a good slimline slot loading BluRay burner to put in mine soon.
