Amex Digital has decided to step in on behalf of MacBook and MacBook Pro owners by releasing a super slim external Blu-ray drive, although Steve Jobs himself has already expressed his aversion to the format

AMEX' Quiet Drive Technology reduces the noise level of the drive, while a liquid crystal tilt/blur compensator compensates for warped discs for a more reliable writing process.

The Portable Blu-ray Super Multi Drive is styled like the MacBook Air's Superdrive and allows users to read and write Blu-ray discs, including BD-R and BD-RE formats in both full 12cm and mini 8cm sizes. Dual-layer Blu-ray media is also supported, allowing users to copy up to 50GB of data at once. Power and interfacing with the computer comes via the drive's USB port.
