Blu-ray laptops coming from Apple and Dell

Apple and Dell are planning to release notebooks later this year that offer Blu-ray drives.

Now that Blu-ray has won the high-def format war and HD DVD is out of the picture, more companies are jumping on the Blu-ray bandwagon and starting to move into the next-generation of media technology. And a new report from the US claims that Apple and Dell are leading the charge.

The story is too old to be commented.

i'm a Mac user but i don't really see any necessity in having one in a laptop or desktop for that matter. it's useless for data storage when HDD's are more cheaper and reliable, movies on the other hand is subjective.

I dont have a desktop PC(and 3.5"HDD) .. all of my Data is in 2 2.5" external HDD (100GB and 160GB)and in my laptop's 160Gb HDD.. (Im a Portable FAN)

and all of them are FULL.. (cuz of 300GB divx, Game installs, Mp3.. )

Blu-ray burner is amazing for me.. DVD isnt enough these days..

btw I have 5 laptop in my home right now and a tablet .. from Pentium3 600mhz to Core2Duo :P

i see your point. but the general consumer might not be using that much space for things, but i could be wrong. i don't think BD-R/RW discs will come cheap any time soon so if you look at the price per GB an external HDD is cheaper and it is less prone to damage.

if they include a BD player/burner without jacking the prices too high then i'm all for it, i mean, it's not a bad thing, but i just think it's not really needed
