Well, does it exist? Can it play Blu Ray movies and record BD-R, BD-RE, etc.
Thanks in advance
You can already write to BD-R/E with Toast or comparable software.
You cannot watch movies in OS X.
You can get a slot-loading Blu-ray drive for a MacBook or MacBook Pro. It's stupidly expensive.
Nope, not yet. Some reasons for that I've read suggest the form factor doesn't support the additional power requirements a Blu-Ray drive would demand. In the future though, Nehalem will probably leave enough power make Blu-Ray an option, which would be nice. Having a 1920x1200 screen and not putting in a Blu-Ray drive is nearly sacrilege!
so, maybe 10.6 will enable playback then? and maybe cheaper blu ray too.....
Don't need Nehalem for that!
The Purevideo HD decoder on the 8600GT already supports Blu-ray/HD-DVD decoding; the drive is $950 right now if you want one:
