Default Blue-ray player for laptop?

I went on newegg and was surprised to find that blue-ray drives for tower computers are only 200 bucks. I can't seem to find any that hook up to laptops. Are there cheap blue-ray drives for laptops out there?

Get an external 5.25" enclosure and throw the drive into there.

Well first you would HAVE to make sure you laptop could display HD content. If not the DRM on the Blu-Ray discs would not be seen on your laptop.

But aside from that there isnt any out for laptops yet as they are still expensive for Desktops. They have not go thte technology down enough to shrink it for a laptop.

You can do what Rican said. Buy a enclosure. But only if you know it will play on your screen.
