Logitec says it'll be shipping its LBD-A2FU2/WM Blu-ray writer to Japan in the next couple of weeks, and it's calling the product the first Mac-friendly Blu-ray disc burner on the market.

The drive will be compatible with both Windows and Mac, and will include Roxio's Toast 7 Titanium Blu-ray burning software for Mac. The FireWire and USB 2.0 drive will also be able to read and write DVDs and CDs. As expected, this first-out-of-the-gate McBurner won't be cheap, starting out at a $1148 retail price. No word when it will be available stateside.
