Paintballing it would be best

Paintballing

it would be best to rip the movies onto your computer and watch it that way. you would barely even have 2hrs battery life. in any case where you have access to a power point, then you would use an external drive. the external drives are MUCH cheaper if you build it yourself anyway. will you seriously be watching bluray movies on the go? i dont see your point of being able to do it unless your version of on the go is hooking up to massive TVs, the quality wont be able to be seen at all. it wuld be much more feasible to convert the movies into a smaller file size, so that you get longer battery life and a less hot CPU. Having Blu-Ray as an OPTION in these new MacBook models is very important to me. Before I get to your argument, thanks for at paintballing spelling Blu-ray correctly. Though, its BD for Blu-ray Disc not BR when abbreviated. ; I prefer BRD, because people tend to understand it better, but Im well aware that offically you dont add the R since ray is part of the word Blu-ray. Your comment wasnt directed at me, but OEM quantity pricing on notebook BD drives is nowhere close to 7 Combo drives are 125-140 and burners are about 215-230 or so again, this is in quantity, not some single unit retail pricing that you are finding for the latest Optiarc and LG drives. First of all, what you are looking at are large tray-loading notebook drives. Apple has been using slot-loading drives for many years now and I see no reason why they would stop now just to add an expensive optical feature that very few people care about. Secondly, Only the 24 iMac and 17 MBP use a 7mm drive. These drives range in price from over 500 to The use of slot-loading drives and this svelte size makes them considerably more expensive and slower than other optical drives. That is the technology, there is nothing we can do about that. Lastly, there are no 5mm drives, slot or tray-loading, that would fit in paintballing MacBook or 15 MacBook Pro, so that point is nil. Panasonic announced they will be making one but nothing has come to market yet. Unless its an external option there is just no possible way that were going to see BRDs in an Mac notebook as long as Apple is obsessed with slick-looking, slot-loading drives and ultra-thin case designs. Steve: Blu-ray is just a bag of hurt. Its great to watch the movies, but the licensing of the tech is so complex, were waiting till things settle down and Blu-ray takes off in the marketplace. So looks like after-market only for the time being. So looks like after-market only for the time least it was touched upon. At least it was touched upon. Agreed. So we can at least put that debate to rest until WWDC at the earliest since this statement precludes a launch at MacWorld, IMO. Would have been nice if someone had asked about the Mini so we could put that one to bed, as well. :p Agreed.

I wouldnt be holding my breath for Blu-ray in a Mac anytime soon. I wouldnt be holding my breath for Blu-ray in a Mac anytime soon. Its a shame, because the movies are amazing to watch. I wouldnt be holding my breath for Blu-ray in a Mac anytime soon. everyone knows what BR means, everyone knows what BD means, nobody really gives a stuff there is no need to correct other people. just live with it. No need to be I was just trying to point out the correct terminology. If people call DVDs Video CDs as they did when they were new, despite that actually being its own completely unrelated format youd know what they but still DVD is correct, just as BD is correct. Getting people to call things by their actual names or acronyms isnt meant to be and Blu-ray aside, people around here would slander you to no end for calling Apple products by some incorrect name or acronym eg. Mac-bookpro. If you want to sound intelligent on a subject, you should really know how to spell simple as that.
