Can I install a blu-ray player into my laptop?

Episode 1019 (32:07)

Matt from Hillsborough, NJ

Matt has a Lenovo laptop and he wants to install a Blu-ray player in it. Leo says that because Blu-ray is more copy protected than a DVD burner, it's more of a challenge to use it on a computer. Windows 8 does support Blu-ray, but he'll still need HDCP support which could require more software. Leo recommends looking around to see if anyone's done this with his particular laptop before he proceeds. While he's at it though, Matt should also install a solid state drive, which will make it a lot faster.
