“There is some way available for playing Blu-ray on iMac, what you need is a external BD drive and Mac Blu-ray Player Software, is the way also apply for the Macbook Air? Can we Play the Blu-ray on the latest Macbook Air?” The MacBook Air family is a line of ultraportable Macintosh notebook computers created by Apple Inc. The Air was designed to balance both performance and portability; it has a full-sized keyboard design and a machined aluminium casing with extremely low weight and thickness. The MacBook Air is available in two sizes: 11.6 inch and 13.3 inch (or 29.46 cm and 33.78 cm, respectively). The MacBook Air has no built-in support for Blu-ray discs. Blu-ray players use a different type of laser than CDs and DVDs, and data is stored more compactly. The differences are internal, so placing a Blu-ray disc in your MacBook Air will not damage the drive, but it also won’t allow you to view your movie.
Despite a lack of Blu-ray drive and native blu-ray playback support, you can still play Blu-ray movies on 11-inch or 13-inch MacBook Air. Today, I would like to introduce a new way to play your Blu-ray on Macbook. And what you need is a kind of third-party software named UFUSoft MacBook Air Blu-ray Player Software which is specially designed for Macbook Air.
