Dell Believes in Blu-Ray Win, Consumers Say Otherwise

Dell Inc., one of the largest suppliers of personal computers on the globe, said on Monday that the Blu-ray disc format will eventually win the war between next-generation digital video disc formats because of broad industry support. To confirm the claim, Dell introduced its new laptop with Blu-ray disc optical drive.

"Blu-ray optical drive technology has gained broad industry support and we believe it will become the optical drive standard of the future," said. Alex Gruzen, senior vice president, Dell Product Group. The Blu-ray disc format is fighting against HD DVD format to replace DVD in future.
