FastMac Offers Blu-Ray Drives for Macs

FastMac is now selling Blu-ray drives for the following Mac computers:
iBook G4
PowerBook G3
PowerBook G4 Titanium
PowerBook G4 Aluminum
MacBook Pro 17″
iMac G5
iMac Intel
Mac Mini

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
