Paul, as soon as Panasonic and the likes have a BR-drive small enough to fit into the MBP enclosure, you can retrofit that into any Powerbook and MBP :-) That is how I replaced my aging super drives until I needed a real speed jump processor-wise. So no need to buy a new MBP if the feature-delta is only a BR-drive.

So no updates from WWDC - I rekon we're looking at the end of the year for blu ray macbook pros and macpros.

I know the models they're using are the same matshita ones that sony use as adobe have already qualified them for CS3 with macbook pros and mac pros :)

it's true you could put one in yourself, but with blu-ray, requiring firmware and specific drivers, you really do not want to do that.

there is already some panasonic (matsushita) half height blu-ray drive for notebooks already, slot loading which dell has on their XPS notebooks. they can be bought for about US $600, but again, no apple firmware available that i know of.

Keep in mind that Apple DVDStudioPro can't author any form of Blu-ray video disk yet.

Certainly you can install a Blu-ray burner in MacPros. I know of folks doing that already. There's a company that many recommend for Mac and they have drives for MacBookPro 17" but the company isn't DVInfo sponsor so I probably can't mention them.
