What is the difference between blu-ray disc support and a blu-ray player?

I'm looking for Sony's online computers, laptops and many say they support Blu-ray, rather than just saying they have a Blu-ray. What does this mean?


This means that you can decide if you want a BD player or not. If you just get a DVD player, it will be cheaper.
