Acer Joins Blu-Ray Disc Association

Acer has become a member of the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), giving Blu-ray a lead among the world's largest PC manufacturers.
We’re delighted to welcome Acer to the Blu-ray Disc Association,
The addition of Acer provides one more sign of the growing momentum behind Blu-ray Disc and, more importantly, is a significant advantage for consumers, as it further expands the already broad options available to consumers in the personal computer space.
said Victor Matsuda, chairman of the BDA’s Global Promotions Committee, in a prepared statement. The company also makes laptops equipped with HD DVD drives. Acer Inc. is currently one of the top five PC brands in the world, and the number one notebook brand in Europe.Source: TGDaily

Who wants to use a drive for BR discs and a drive for your regualr DVD/CD backups? Other then for movie purposes it's not practical as a backup media yet unless you are just getting started. Or, willing to convert all your current DVD/CD backups into BR.

I can understand your point on media prices, but most Blu-Ray burners read and burn DVD at least.
