    Blu Ray
    If I get an external blu ray drive like this one, will there be any issues playing blu ray movies on a 27" imac?

    Thanks!

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Only that there exists not a single player that will play commercial B-R discs in OS X that I'm aware of.

    Should work just fine booting to Windows with the appropriate software installed.

    Do you know why it is that OS X won't play blu ray discs? Is this going to be something we can look forward to in the future?

    Guess it will have to be run from a Windows partition. THanks

    Only because Apple has so far refused to put B-R players in their machines, which in turn leads to a lack of developers willing to spend the time on such an app. Another reason my HTPC is a homebuilt rig running Win7 and not a Mac.
