I have the software in Toast to burn blue ray discs, however the cost  
of media has held me back (around $A25  for a 25 GB disc and $A50 for  
a 50BG disc).   Also, I need to acquire a Blue Ray burner.

I have an Intel Mac Tower and seek your recommendations as to which  
way to go with a burner, ie an internal , or external burner ,make  
etc.    If an internal burner is suggested I could remove one of the  
two Super Drives in the Tower.

What price can those of you living in Nth America purchase blank Blue  
Ray discs for?

I would like to move across to saving my work on Blue Ray media as it  
seems a pity to record in HD, but then have to save to normal DVD media.

NB.  I have and use DVD Studio Pro version 4, but I am not sure  
whether it is set up to handle Blue Ray formatting etc.

Thanks for any info you can provide,
