    Hey,

    Has anyone heard of apple incorporating any Blu-ray technology into their new Macbooks?

    Never. No. It isn't happening until 2015 at LEAST. Could you please follow the rules and search before posting?

    If you have any evidence for Blu-ray before this, please post it.

    Tallest please keep posting your opinion but with what apple is offering with downloads I feel the numbers in your prediction are a little mixed up.
    You keep saying 2015, are you sure its not more like 2051?

    I don't have any, because Apple haven't said when or if they are going to go with Blu-ray and they certainly haven't stated they will be waiting until 2015.

    I may switch numbers around occasionally, but I didn't mess up that much.

    Here's an old post of mine where I explained why I think it'll be 2015 before we see Blu-ray:

    Do you have evidence for Blu-ray after this date, other than your well thought out prediction?

    I do hope you're wrong.

    I don't mind using an external. I just hope we can get the OS to support the playback.

    His own opinion is evidence enough, apparently...

    It's a well thought out opinion, but still, just because Japan will be adopting certain technology at a certain date, doesn't mean the rest of the world will.

    I'm hoping within the next year to 18 months the OS will at least support Blu-ray.

    That way, we can use externals at least.

    Snow Leopard doesn't support blu-ray at the moment, so thats not very likely.

    Apple will sell HD films through the iTunes store rather than adopting blu-ray players in their Mac's, and before anyone says "oh its ridiculous to expect people to download 50GB blu-ray discs" actually a blu-ray quality high definition movie can be fit on a normal DVD.

    So you are saying a blu ray quailty movie can fit on a dvd...with the HD audio etc?

    I downloaded the new Bond movie in "HD" on iTunes and its a joke compared to Blu Rays...it also took a long time to download.

    720p max video
    audio equivalent to that of a dvd at best.

    all for $20, not worth it, but had to try it atleast once.
