Default Re: Why Apple hasn't put a bluray or hd-dvd player in their computers

They announced early on their support for BluRay, and I for one wish they'd get with the program and install that BD RW disk in their laptops.
Now that's a good laugh...wait - let me take time out to laugh (LOL!!!!!)! Cost being the issue on a Mac!?? When you sell a computer for 2000.00 plus - what would an extra 200 to 400 do to put an HD driver in it - especially when you are supporting Bluray? PC's have BD burners for under 400.00 now - believe me when I say price is not the real issue.
