If you won $500 solely for movies, would you buy them on iTunes or buy a Blu-ray drive and a lot of movies and rip them yourself? I want to take advantage of the Retina display and load my iPad with 1080p movies. I am not sure if I should just buy them directly from iTunes which would be much easier, or burn them myself. Is it a pain in the butt to rip them yourself? From what I understand, I could rip them from the Blu-ray discs and encode them using Handbrake overnight.
