To end the Blu-Ray discussion, here are the reasons Apple CANNOT support Blu-Ray. 1. You cannot output Blu-Ray content because MiniDisplayPort is not HDCP compliant. Only HDMI is HDCP compliant. That means even if you did stick a Blu-Ray drive in a MBP, it will not output HD. 2. Apple cannot switch from MiniDisplayPort to HDMI because HDMI cannot display resolutions higher than 1200p (unless you buy a monitor that supports HDMI 1.4 and I don't know of any that's been released). Apple also cannot abandon MiniDisplayPort for compatibility reasons with their other products. 3. Apple can put both a MiniDisplayPort and an HDMI port on the MBP but this is overkill and they would never do that, especially when DisplayPort is a superior technology and a royalty-free and open standard. When Jobs talks about Blu-Ray licensing being "a bag of hurt", this is what he means. Blu-Ray is tied to HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection), which only works with HDMI, yet the PC industry is embracing DisplayPort as the new standard.
