Where do you see blu-ray burners for $90? Newegg has them for $60.

I like high-def movies, but blu-ray can store a lot of data too. With 25GB
for a single-layer disc or 50GB for a double-layer disc, it can be a good
backup medium - although for backups, USB flash drives might be easier (but
which is cheaper right now might depend on the brand and speeds).
