Any word on price? Id like to see a do it all writer featuring Blu-Ray even though the media for it is still wickedly expensive.

I would like to know a price as well... I honestly feel that it is better to wait a year or two on the new Blu-ray and HD-DVD writers because the prices are very high and they will drop quite a bit as time goes on. Plus, as WarEagleAU said, the blank media is very expensive. :ohwell:

Being able to write that much data to a DVD would sure be nice though!!!
