Logitec delays Blu-ray Disc drives a month

Another week, another high-definition optical disc-related product delay. This time it's Logitech, which 'fessed up on Wednesday that we're going to have to wait another couple of weeks for the two models that were due out a couple of weeks ago in Tokyo.

There doesn't seem to be any fundamental hardware problem causing the delay of the YEN 121,800 (US$1,061) LBD-A2U2 and the YEN 138,600 LBD-A2FU2/WM for Macs, except for adjusting some electronics to change the drives from internal to external (internal Blu-ray drives from Logitech already on sale) and some jiggery-pokery required to make the machines Mac-happy.

The drives measure 162 x 265.5 x 52.3mm and weigh 1.7kg. They write BD-R/RE at 2x (!), DVD±R DL at 4x, DVD-RAM at 5x, DVD-RW at 6x, and DVD±R/+RW at 8x. For those CDs of yours, you're looking at writing speeds of 24x for CVD-R and 16x for CD-RW.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
