    Acer Computer, who is one of the globe’s biggest producers of personal computers, may shortly intro its laptops with either Blu-ray or HD DVD disk drives, providing users a choice and not taking sides, like some other computer makers.

    A news-story by DigiTimes web-site claims that Acer plans to introduce notebooks that feature built-in Blu-ray Disc (BD) optical disc drives (ODDs) and HD-DVD drives at Computex 2006 show in Taipei, Taiwan, which kicks off on the 6th of June, 2006.

    Acer did not comment as to whether notebooks featuring BD or HD-DVD drives will be featured at its booth, according to the web-site, however, it is known that Acer was going to intro a multimedia notebook featuring HD DVD drive (see this story for details). Being agnostic to the formats and taking no sides, Acer may support both competing next-generation DVD formats.

    Is there any way for a dive to support both Blu-ray and HD-DVD at the same time or are their technologies too different?
