Is it possible to mod my MacBook for a Blu-Ray drive?
probably but you would only be able to burn data to Blu-ray discs and not watch Blu-ray movies as there is currently no software in OS X to do this and MacBook's arent HDCP compatible. you will have to use software in Windows to do this.
yes you can do- but battery will drops very quickly
While it may be possible, it could only be used to burn discs, even in windows. The screen resolution is only 800px, where as BD is 1080.
You could just downscale it.
What would be the point then? Really? The loss in battery life and processing power required to downscale 1080p to 720p? 800p? wouldn't be worth it. That and watching 1080p on that screen isn't that great.
I could think of a few reasons why: plug in the AC and battery life is a non-issue, attach an external screen or import to iTunes and watch on Apple TV in full-HD. I guess the issue is more a hardware issue - I believe you would need a new drive to read the B-R disk.
