I recently acquired (OK bought) a new 27" iMac and have an issue that I'm trying to get around... With where the iMac is sitting on my desk, I don't have access to the CD/DVD drive. The good news is that I don't need access very often, but when I do, I don't want to be moving the $2K screen around, I really don't want to even touch it.

Can I add an external drive to use with the iMac? I know they sell a "super drive" for the MacBook air. What about a Blu-Ray drive?

Yes, yes you can. Quick search on newegg resulted in:

PLEXTOR Black 6X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM USB External BD Combo Super Multi Drive Model PX-B310U

$139 at time of writing.

Not sure if Apple's software supports playing Blue Ray discs yet, though. I've not messed with it yet.
