Why Blu Ray?

Sorry if this has been asked, but I searched the forums and couldn't find anything on point. I'm looking for a new laptop. I'd like to spend less than $1000.00. There seems to be a significant price jump for laptops with blu ray capability. I'm trying to decide if it's something I need, or is otherwise worth it. To ask a no doubt stupid question: is the only reason to get blu ray so that you can watch blu ray DVD's on your laptop?
Supplementary question: if I go the blu ray route, should I get one that burns as well as plays? i.e., can you even burn blu ray quality DVD's?
Again, sorry if this has already been canvassed. Any advice would be much appreciated! I've asked some sales clerks, but they just go into hard sell mode.
