    is it worth it to buy a notebook computer with a blu ray optical drive

    I am about to get me one of those XPS M1530s.. however, getting it with the blu ray drive would cost me about 280 pounds more !!!

    I am also worried I'll need it a year or two from now ..

    so what you think .. should I ?

    no, I wouldn't bother, unless you are desperate to watch bluray movie NOW. You'll probably want to get a new laptop in a couple of years time anyway and by then the drives will be soooooo much cheaper (and so will be the movies).

    Software will continue to come on DVD for the life of your laptop, the only reason to get blu-ray is for watching movies in HD.
