    With today's announcement and still no BD support, I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say: no, Apple will never implement Blu-ray on their hardware.

    What about you?

    PS: Is it just me or does the lack of ExpressCard and a dedicated GPU make the 15" MBP a joke for us professionals?

    I don't think Apple is interested in Blue Ray
    Quite frankly... neither am I

    So, to answer your question... probably not, unless things change dramatically

    To make it worse, they insulted everyone by including an SD card slot. I could think of a couple ways to use an ExpressCard slot, but no reason to ever use SD.

    With both Microsoft and Apple going the way of downloads, I think the days of disks are numbered! Microsoft and there 1080p movie on demand 'Zune store' and Apple on itunes.

    Thats my opinion anyway!

    The keynote stated only 1% of users actually use it. Pros will use the 17inch for the matte screen anyways.
