A short news-story filed by ThinkSecret web-site claims that according to industry rumors Apple is scheduled to receive the first Blu-ray drives for Macs in February. While details beyond that are unavailable, it is still noticeable event that Apple is considering to release a desktop or notebook with a high definition digital video disc.
The original post offers very few details, and official statements from Apple haven't been made yet. It makes perfect sense, though. The price impact on machines coming with these drives is probably significant, since standalone players alone are still very expensive.
