Watch Blu-rays and play your Xbox 360/PS3 on the new 27″ iMac

Increasing reports of broken, defective, and all out f’d up 27″ iMac display problems aside, sometimes we just want to use that 2560 x 1440 of super hi-def goodness for things other than your typical computing needs. For starters, Blu-ray on such a screen would be a great start. Don’t have a hi-def TV or are tired of looking at two different screens — one for TV one for computing? Thankfully Apogee will soon be debuting their own HDMI to mDP adapter that will allow you oh so lucky 27″ iMac users to fully make use of that brothel of pixels waiting for a good flogging.

A few things worth knowing such as price and availability are for now unknown. But come on, do you really need to even think about buying this? With the big uptick in functionality added to your iMac, you can’t afford not to pick this up. Why have both a computer and TV when your iMac now serves as computer, blue-ray player, gaming screen, etc. etc.?

The only caveat I can find at the moment is that support is limited to the current gen 27″ iMac. While the 21.5 incher as well as the previous iMac generations would love to benefit from such an adapter as well, the focus of most of everyone’s lust is aimed solely at that 27″ behemoth is it not?
