    I really don't see why not, the stock UJ-868A is the same 9.5mm dimensions as this UJ232A Blu-Ray drive.

    Does anyone actually have this drive installed in their Unibody MacBook Pro 15"?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think this is supported on OSX so really can't see the point in installing this even if it does fit.

    I dont see the reason for a blu ray drive in a MBP anyway?

    if your gonna use it on your TV get a blu-ray player its cheaper..
    or get a PS3 you get games and a blu-ray player.

    you cant get 1080p in anything but a 17" MBP so the vast majority...

    why not just download from itunes? its cheaper than a blu-ray and more easily useable on other media like TV just you flash memory sticks?

    I wonder if you can still use it as a dvd drive, eventhough os x has no bluray driver.

    The specs look right, but it's tough to tell without someone trying it first.

    You can burn discs with Toast 10 and you can play Blu-ray Discs with Make MKV and VLC.

    It will not fit!!

    Despite being the right size it will not fit as it is not a slot loading drive.
