Truthfully, I don't really want to start the old arguments all over again. I just noticed this:
Pioneer Announces BDR-XD04 The Smallest Blu-Ray Burner
It says that Macbook and MacBook Air owners can write to BR using this drive. The drive releases next week.
Did I miss a memo? Has Apple enabled native BR capabilities in Lion? I presume if you can write to BR you can play one as well?
