The dream is alive

The dream is alive soundtrack

The fact that you cant buy the drive at retail has nothing to do with the fact that they are manufactured, available to OEMs, and cost substantially less than the figure you quoted. BTW, you can custom configure a Dell Inspiron 1525 or 1420 with BD combo drive for under 700, so if you REALLY think thats the price of the drive, then Dell is paying you to take the rest of the system off their hands. Also, that pricing is before any discounts. And as to your point about an external drive why? If you already own Blu-ray discs and have other players, you likely want the ability to play the movies on the go and having an external drive certainly doesnt get you anywhere with that. Well know soon enough what the plans are, but I beleive VERY strongly Blu-ray will be announced tomorrow. If not, then Ill be placing my order for an HP Elitebook 6930 at 1pm CST and giving up on Apple as a viable alternative to Microsoft. Before I get to your argument, thanks for at least spelling Blu-ray correctly. Though, its BD for Blu-ray Disc not BR when abbreviated. ; And as to your point about an external drive why?

Having Blu-Ray as an OPTION in these new MacBook models is very important to me. Before I get to your argument, thanks for at least spelling Blu-ray correctly.

Your comment wasnt directed at me, but OEM quantity pricing on notebook BD drives is nowhere close to 7
