How to Play Blu-ray Movies on Macbook Pro and Macbook Air

Macbook Pro

Equipped with fourth-generation dual-core and quad-core Intel processors, brand-new graphics and PCle-based flash-storage, Macbook Pro shows us stunning playing effect on its Retina display and provides us large capacity for tons of files. With over 5 million pixels in 15-in version and over 4 million on the 13-in version, both deliver unprecedented clarity in playing video. All these make this laptop a perfect place for Blu-ray playing. Sleek and modern, this laptop sits at the midway point between slim ultrabook and mainstream powerhouse. However, the powerful Macbook Pro still needs an external Blu-ray drive to play Blu-ray disc, which means there's no built-in Blu-ray playing software either. Another similar device, Macbook Air, is even more convenient player, especially for female users. It is thinner and lighter, even if it has no retina display, it's still popular for movie watching. As to Blu-ray playing, it has the same problem – no BD drive.

What best fit your Macbook Pro is Aiseesoft Mac Blu-ray Player. Whether you are using 13-inch or 15-inch Pro or Air, the Blu-ray disc will be played on it limitlessly, losslessly and smoothly.
