"Cheaper" Blu-ray drive now available on laptops

Need big storage but want to keep it optical? Maybe you have 45GB of porno that you want all on one disc? Take a gander at Optiarc’s BC-5500A – a Blu-ray drive that’ll fit in most laptops. You can snag it for only $335 and it can also burn dual-layer DVDs, single-layer DVDs, and good ol’ regular CD-Rs.

It’ll be available this week at most online retailers. Better have a good screen on your laptop to go along with the BC-5500A.
