    Acer has become a member of the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), giving Blu-ray a lead among the world's largest PC manufacturers.
    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.

    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.
