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

It has a smaller display, and not as much storage nor as much connectivity as the Mac I have now. I cannot connect my camcorder to it, yet it comes with applications to make Movies and burn them to DVD.... How many of those sub-$400 PCs you refer to having BD burners are laptops.... Eyes rolled in response...
You didn't understand me - what I was saying is that Mac's are expensive already so why not put BD in them. I'm not saying that there are 400.00 PC's with BD burners in them, I was saying that burners themselves are $400.00. To say...What is an extra $400.00 to a Mac user? They should support BD and put burners in their computers since people pay a premium for Mac anyway.
