In the Sony VGX-XL1 can you replace the DVD drive with a Blu-Ray Drive? And if so can you find the drives that don't have trays that just pull in the disc. I've been able to find Ps3 drives, do you think I could use one of them? Thanks for the help

yes you can replace the drive with a panasonic uj-215 or uj-225 for about a thousand dollars, I know because I purchased one and no the ps3 drive wont work. also you need a beefier videocard like the low profile msi 8600gt or low profile msi 8500gt. I have all these parts listed above and may part with them for the right price.
