    I just assumed it would, it's a new unit (27 inch). But I was ripping/converting some DVDs using Handbrake and stuck in a Blueray disc and it spit it out.

    No Mac ever made will read Blu-ray discs in the built-in optical drive.

    This is turning out to be such a funny post. You guy's have me in stitches!

    I guess if the OP wrote to Steve Jobs; Herr Steve would probably reply with "you are putting it in wrong" (that's what she said).:eek:

    I wonder if the OP is serious about his question?

    You can do blu-ray on a Mac with an external drive and windows in bootcamp.
    A quick look at the specs for the iMac would show it doesn't have blu-ray

    Sorry I started such a gutbusting thread lol :D. I am obviously new to Macs. I don't really care if it does Blueray. But I read some threads somewhere and people were ripping/converting Blueray discs using the Handbrake software. I guess they were using an external and bootcamp, like you said. For my money blueray is more about the audio than the video anyway.

    Maybe you should read spec on the box first, no Bluray. Steve hates it, if you want to rip bluray, get an external BD drive, if you want to watch one, gw to windows bootcamp and get PowerDVD or some player software

    I don't count bluray as a requirement to make my iMac "half decent". It's already fully decent.
