FastMac is now selling Blu-ray drives for the following Mac computers:
PowerBook G4 Titanium
PowerBook G4 Aluminum
MacBook Pro 17″
The drive is backward compatible with every CD and DVD format but currently it isn’t possible to playback Blu-ray movies so this will only be a blu-ray reader and burner currently. It can burn up to 50GB on a Blu-Ray disc.
It would seem like you would get more for your money if you bought a Blu-Ray drive that actually played movies as well as burning and reading. I dunno, 800 bucks seems a little steep for that.
Just my 2 cents.
Well currently there isn’t any software that will play blu-ray movies on the Mac. When it comes out this drive will do it just fine but no one has made it yet. The drive is also a laptop drive if I’m not mistaken although it isn’t very clear on the website.
