Note: Apple's new ultra-sexy laptop (my laptop is getting jealous as I type this into her) has NO DRIVE AT ALL....

Jobs is a visionary. Perhaps he is beyond drives?

WARNING: if he is - beware a push for more low-resolution crap from Apple like their 256k audio files being sold as HD. This comes from a long-time Apple user and supporter.

Jerry, I believe he is visionary. The fact that the new laptop has no drives was a specific point that he wanted to make. He said that we are now beyond drives, combine that with his downloads getting ready (and believe me he will up it to 1080p with full audio - this from a Microsoft guy - but learning to like Mac) makes his real point and vision clear.

I was wondering when Apple would start also.
I've been wanting to upgrade my tower.

These guys are selling blu-ray drives for Apples.

I still have not decided. I have also seen LG selling the Super Blue drives that play both blu-ray and HD DVD which may be a better choice for the computer.

We all know how Apple can be when it comes down to 3rd party hardware - no gurantee to work.
