    Apple and Blu-Ray?
    Now that Pioneer will start shipping out Blu-Ray drives at the end of the month, how long do you think till we'll see the first Blu-Ray drive in an Apple line?

    I'm betting that because Blu-Ray is backed by Panasonic and Sony (Who have never made a mac compatible product) it could be sometime after intel macs that we see Blu-Ray drives in macs, unless apple decides to buy the rights and make their own Blu-Ray drives.

    My current and previous PowerBooks have both used MATSUSH|TA (Panasonic) optical drives. Some Macs use Sony "SuperDrives" too.

    Yeah, and Apple is part of the Blu-Ray disc association, so I'm betting we'll have these drives in the mac community about the same time as everybody else.

    i think they want it to be more widely used and more tested and all the bugs worked out, there computers don't want to have a bad reputation with such a small market share.
