Hewlett-Packard began its HD video-purveying life as a member of the HD DVD camp, but come Wednesday, two of its Pavilion desktops will take a more inclusive position in the format war by offering internal dual-format Blu-ray/HD DVD drives.
This is all fine and dandy, but why would the consumer want both choices...I mean jesus who buys both HD-DVD and BR movies. I don't understand this logic....your forcing 2 formats into the industry when only one should be standard.
wow...dual for PC...must cost a bit.
I would say the drive alone probably cost around $500-600 bucks.
exclusive camp, i wish one of them would just win already so i know wich to buy, i have a strong feeling it will be blu-ray, but you never know, crazy stuff can happen
Unless you didn't mean HP was exclusive until now, you're wrong. HP has been a long time backer of BOTH formats. They announced their support for HD-DVD a long time ago.
there support for hd dvd, this is the first time they have made somthing for blu-ray
I had a 360 well before the PS3 came out. I bought the HD add on and have been buying and enjoying HD movies for some time. Then I bought a PS3 and in turn also bought some Blue-Ray movies cuz they have some titles I wanted that were not on HD. So yeah it's possible to buy both formats ^^. There is no need for only one format, it's not 'highlander' in dvd land ya know ^.-
The bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu trainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
lol...aND IT RECORD br...BUT NOT hd...cool...the one with more capacity is the you can save things...^HP rocks:P (i have one)
Rumor is Apple will start releasing Mac's with dual formats as well. It was to have a Blu-Ray back in Jan'...but it never happened. It is said the new Leo OS supports both formats.
and steve jobs lazy
