    so you can fit a blu-ray drive in your self? and it'll play blu-ray, cos thats pretty cool, and that hard drive will fit i think the 13 inch can take up to 12.5mm i think but im not sure :cool:

    I've seen it done on the non unibody machines. Don't think OS X will play blu-ray films though no.

    I'd guess the drive would work ok in a uni body if you could find a 9.5 mm slot loading blu-ray model. I think they're expensive/really hard to get hold of though.

    Still, if anyone wants to correct me, I'd be really interested in doing this too.

    no not rip it...

    just take off all the protections so it can be watched straight away off the disc on a mac

    heres a guide...

    1.open makemkv
    2.open the bluray disc in makemkv (takes 10secs)
    3.select the title with the most chapters
    4.click start streaming sever
    5.click on link it provides (opens in web browser).
    6.link in web browser is called /web/titles...click that.
    7.then click link called /web/title0
    8.then clt click /stream/title0.m2ts and copy the link
    9.open vlc and open link in open network
    10.watch movie

    very simple! takes 30secs to watch a bluray on your mac

    no ripping needed :)

    Ah right, that's pretty interesting. Thanks! May consider an external. Would love an internal. Really surprised no manufacturers made a nice internal one that fits.

    Last I checked there were no 1tb ssd options. The closest is 512gb, but at 1.5k that's pretty steep for most people.

    I cant fathom why people would spend hundreds on an SSD. If a few years they will be standard on computers, and be dirt cheap. Just buy the smallest feasible size, and put all your non essential data on a portable USB hard drive. 1500 for an SSD. I would rather get 5 hp Minis and use them as paperweights.
