Now that Sony’s Blu-ray has won the format war, rumors are flying that Dell and Apple want to incorporate these drives into their high-end laptops.
According to several reports, the two companies plan on releasing Blu-ray notebooks later this year. They say that since there is only one high-def format now, Dell and Apple will want to start moving into the next generation of media technology.
Unfortunately, drives like this would come at a price. Today’s laptop Blu-ray drives are power hungry, with some users reporting a completely drained battery after half of a movie. Of course, that would all change in the future as technology evolves, so hopefully we can see more efficient drives later this year.
