huge. a rising laptop company just went neutral. they are now in the top 5 of best selling laptops in the nation. bda just gained even more support. i think i know why there was a desperate bid at Paramount, this news has been huge today.

monkeyman, they won't, thats why they had to offer the big bucks to paramount (not even that great of an hd studio) just to stay in the game past xmas. this war would have been over otherwise. it still will be just a little later and at a steep price for toshiba/ms. no cheap chinese player or transformers in hd dvd is going to save it.

stockstar <---did you even look at Paramount's old BD list? Here is a link...Out of maybe 25-30 movies, I cant bring myself to buy anything from their studio other than Payback, and MAYBE the Italian Job...I have almost 50 BD movies now, and NONE of them are Paramount, and I wont buy the BD left overs, let them sit on the shelves and collect dust with the HDDVD reelases!

Here is the very short and unattractive list of BD releases from Crapamount!

I love my Acer laptop that I got a few months ago, but if they release a new model that is Blu-ray equipped later this year then I'm buying it.

Wow, I think so far this could potentially be the biggest announcement so far since Acer so going to be buying up Gateway and will be making it the 3rd biggest PC manufacturer in the US behind HP and Dell. This deal could put alot of Blu-Ray drives out to the PC market and increase Blu-Ray sales and hopefully also drive Blu-Ray drive, & media prices down. Take that Toshiba with your janky @$$ HD-DUD drives you want to use in your laptops next year!

Acers products are normally cheaper so this should get blu-ray into the hands of many more people.

This is going to cause many people to read about blu-ray who haven't already when looking at computers. This is going to bring a huge amount of advertisement and exposure.

I think this is pretty important considering the own or will own gateway. It mean more players, more sales and more movies. While the gateway market isn't huge it will offer what dell has been offering and be competetive

a low cost respectable computer with blu-ray, now were talkin. exposure is greater and more consumers will want to find out about their machines capablities and as the bulk of consumers are still on the side lines this may get some more to swing our way in the movie world
