In getting ready for my new imac one of the things was to have an external optical waiting to go and this time I splurged on a nice blu-ray reader/writer from OWC. I placed the order Thursday evening expecting it to arrive next week, nope, yesterday. http://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/MRF8UEBDW14S/ I am sure my spouse thought I was insane when I walked into the apartment with a wild grin and hugging the OWC box. Of course I had to test it with playing a blu-ray right after plugging it in. edit: gak! wrong forum!
