Fastmac offers Blu-ray upgrade for Mac mini
Friday, April 6, 2007 - 1:48 PM EST
Posted by: Glenn

Fastmac today announced the availability of its Blu-ray optical disk upgrade for the Mac mini. The new slimline drive supports reading, writing and re-writing to single (25GB) and dual layer (50GB) Blu-ray media at 1x speeds. It also works with DVD and CD media, able to write to DVD-R and DVD+R discs at 8x in single layer and 2x in dual/double layer mode; it can rewrite to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 4x speeds. Fastmac's drive also supports DVD-RAW reading and writing and up to 5x speeds and CD-R and CD-RW discs at 8x speeds.

The drive is also compatible with following Apple computers: iBook G4, iMac G5, iMac Intel, MacBook Pro (17-inch), PowerBook G3 Pismo, PowerBook G4 Titanium (667 Mhz or higher) and PowerBook G4 Aluminum.

It should be noted that Blu-ray burning requires 3rd-party software such as Roxio's Toast 8 Titanium, which enables Blu-ray disk support in the Mac OS Finder, and Blu-ray media. Native support for Blu-ray burning within iLife & iTunes is expected in the future via Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, but cannot be guaranteed at this time. Fastmac's Blu-Ray optical drive upgrade is scheduled to ship within 10 days and is priced at $799.95.
