Psystar Beats Apple to Blu-ray on OS X Computer

Shrugging off its ongoing legal dispute with Apple, unauthorized Mac clone maker Psystar this week trounced Apple, introducing OS X-compatible PCs with Blu-ray drives and the Nvidia 9800GT graphics card. Apple offers neither peripheral on a Mac.

Psystar notes that Mac OS X Blu-ray support is limited to read/write data capabilities only and there is no Blu-ray software capable of playing back Blu-ray video on the Mac.

Psystar president Rudy Pedraza said: ""Blu-ray has already won the format war. Not only is there fully functional and mature support for Blu-ray in other operating systems but you can now rent Blu-ray discs from almost any rental chain. Blu-ray has become pervasive technology that is being widely adopted by consumers everywhere."

The peripherals are available as build-to-order upgrades.
