Beyond home theater applications - the increased storage capacity of Blu-ray as a disc format makes it tempting for Apple super-heavy-users on the desktop tower Mac Pro machines. A Blu-ray drive in a Mac Mini or Apple TV would raise the price but would make it even more tempting in the home theater market as you would have the best in music/movie downloads along with the best in 1080p video in one slick package.
