MCE Technologies has announced what it says is the first ever internal drive for the iMac, and Mac mini that plays Blu-ray movies with the included Mac Blu-ray Player software.

The drive also reads and records to DVD and CD-recordable media like the original Apple SuperDrive it’s designed to replace — so it only works with Macs that have a built-in SuperDrive. The drive is compatible with Apple’s DVD Player application for the playback of DVD movies, as well as with Finder Burning for burning DVDs and CDs at the Finder level.

The MCE Internal Blu-ray Player for iMac and Mac mini costs US$79.99 USD and includes Mac Blu-ray Player software installation instructions for the iMac and Mac mini. More info may be found at .
