So I'm about to drop 3grand on a new Macbook Pro. Now my biggest issue comes down to the fact that I won't be able to watch Blu-Ray movies through the output at 1080p. If Apple comes out with a Blu-Ray drive down the road you think it'll be a hot swap or some proprietary sizing for a newer generation of laptops? I don't wanna spend 3 grand then have to pay more money for a drive that is external Thoughts?

you could get a popcorn hour and use blue-rays rips.Welcome To Popcorn Hour but this is usually for ppl who want to use their HDTV. Why do you want to watch 1080p on your laptop?
