    Due to Jobs being who he is we will still only have sd-movies on dvd and not hd-movies on blu-ray on the mac in 2015. Not even homemade blu-ray is allowed to be recorded on the mac as it is. Be happy if you live in a country that have highly compressed rips sold in the itunes store. That is all we will get if that. Just download a torrent, that is what Jobs want.

    No. I doubt bluray will happen this year. Besides, I would want to enjoy Avatar (or any other bluray movie) on a bigger screen than 13"-17" - wouldn't you?

    Buy a dedicated player or a PS3. I would wait to see what the new MBPs will be like, but that is because the new Intel processors and the optional anti-glare for the 13" MBPs. I see no chance for Blu Ray, or at least not in a way that makes it worth buying.

    I'd say just buy an external Blu-Ray drive :) You can get them for as cheap as £120, or if you opt for a Mac Pro, as little as £60 on Amazon.

    What is with this statement? Everyone says it. Lots of us want to make blu-ray movies or have giant monitors or HDTVs that we hook our laptops up to. It is absolutely ridiculous that Apple won't put a blu-ray drive in their machines. They've always advertised themselves as "media" computers.
