Because people are just being silly now. It has been going on for over a year with people saying o who cares about Blu-Ray anyway. Discussing rumours is all well and good but when we can easily find out the actual preference of the forum it would be much nicer.But its such a nice item to discuss and has not immediate value ... a rumor !!
Why kill enthusiasm?
I actually think the Mac mini needs it most of Apple's current offerings.I think Apple should seriously consider putting blue ray drives in most of their computers! I could see excluding the mac mini and maybe the low end macbook, but I think many people would really like this feature
