    If you can find one slim enough and are willing to pay the price, it'll work under BootCamp, but not sure about OS X environment. I think it'll work as a data drive, but not for video.

    I don't know of any 9.5mm-height Blu-Ray drives. If you can find a slot-loading model, it should work, barring any unforeseen incompatibilities.

    under OSX you cannot play back BR videos natively (only Toast Titanium can burn movies), but it can burn data to BR discs.

    there are no 9.5mm drives, but apparently the unibodies now use 12.5mm drives, so it is possible. :)

    Let me guess, you searched for PAN-UJ-235A? The model number is just UJ-235A, so that's what I searched for. ;)

    sorry, had a misunderstanding with another person who was providing the information to me. the unibodies still use the 9.5mm drives. which is unfortunate.

    9.5mm BR slot-loading drives are hard to come across... and expensive (do they even exist?)
