How to watch blu-ray on laptop?
I have a modern laptop that can read/write dvd as well as cd. It won't play HD-DVD or Blu-ray's. I was wondering is there is a program or something that I need to add or buy that will let me watch them on my laptop? I'll get into burning them later. Just want to watch them on it for now.

External Blu-Ray drive would be a start, these usually come with something like PowerDVD to use to play them back, if not you will also need some playback software.
On top of that you need either a good CPU (2GHz+ core2duo) or a graphics card that can accelerate Blu-Ray playback (ATi or nVidia or the very newest Intel).
On Cyberlinks website there is a program that will let you know if your PC meets the needed specs to playback Blu-Ray.
Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 3.33GHz (333x10)
Swiftech H20 Ultra+ Watercooling
CoolerMaster Tsunami Dream Case
6GB PC6400 DDR2 RAM @ 4-4-4-15 800MHz (2x2 + 2x1)
Asus P5K Deluxe
8800GTS @ 800/2000/1000 + Water block
19" BenQ 4:3 TFT
19" Hannson 16:9 TFT
Samsung 750GB x 3 Raid 5
Logitech G15 Keyboard
iPhone 3G 16GB
