Apple doesn’t mention Blu-Ray support with the new MacBook Pro and I was surprised when a new MacBook Pro owner wrote that Toast 8 showed the OEM Matshita UJ-857E drive as having Blu-Ray read and write support. The UJ-857 (no E) was used in some previous MacBook Pros/MacBooks and was often maligned for things like slow write speeds (4x limited) but I could find no current specs on the UJ-857E model and it’s not currently listed at Original Equipment Optical Drives from Panasonic (parent of Matshita). (There may be a japanese page or other panasonic page that’s more current?)
