    shit.

    I think apple.com says 'sept', but I wasn't so certain of that. I don't wanna wait.

    I would highly recommend you pre order. There is a lot of buzz about it and I would be shocked if it doesn't sell out pretty quickly.

    There's no way to convert them to be Apple-friendly? I thought that was one of the draws to Apple, that the software is built-in for archiving your DVD's? If I can't archive DVD's and play them through the Apple TV or on an iPad/iPhone them I'm out.

    I convert all of mine to h.264 as soon as I rip them to the hard drive. Works like a charm and you can set up long queues in handbrake and just let it work on them overnight.

    Sure you can. I just have zero wish to convert to H2.64. It takes way to long and I am not going to run my MBP for days on end doing the conversions. Besides, HDD space is cheap and leaving it as a DVD file allows me to burn a copy of it if needed and I can play it via the DVD Player in OS X without issues.

    Yeah, if I had a MP like you I would consider doing that. Converting to high quality with handbrake takes HOURS on my laptop. I can rip 3-4 dual density DVDs in the time it takes handrake to convert one to Apple TV quality. My MBP would be converting nonstop for almost two months if I were to do that (I did the math...that freaking long)
