Fastmac quietly releases a Mac-specific external Blu-ray drive


I just got back from MacWorld and stopped by the Fastmac booth on the way out to see what was shakin and came across this unannounced external Blu-ray drive. Sure, it looks super ugly and not really geared towards Mac owners, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s a $99 external Blu-ray drive.

I’m told that they are working on an external Blu-ray drive that will burn BD-R discs but it won’t be coming for a while. This one only burns CDs and DVDs. But, again, it’s $99. It needs an external power source, but it does come with a dual head USB cable so you can just run it off your laptop, which is what most of us would do. I want one now.

Sadly, it’s not available on the site (yet) and if you’re in SF then stop by MacWorld to pick one up.
