Rumor: Apple Readying Blu-ray Equipped iMacs?

Apple may finally be adopting Blu-ray according to reports from Apple Insider, Apple is apparently prepping iMacs with built in Blu-ray support among other things. The new iMac was finalized in early September and has been in production for approximately 2 weeks in various Taiwanese factories.

Odds are Blu-ray will be available as a premium add on for those wishing to give their new iMac the ability to playback Blu-ray content. If this turns out to be true it may come as a shock to some as nearly a year ago Apple’s Steve Jobs called Blu-ray a “bag of hurt”. Aside from Blu-ray, the report states the new iMacs will have a more affordable pricing structure in comparison to previous generations, audio related enhancements, and various aesthetic redesigns.

Assuming this turns out to be true, would any Format War Central readers be tempted to buy a iMac with built in Blu-ray support?
