Are you interested in a laptop that will allow you to watch movies or play 3D games without the need for 3D glasses? If you are, Toshiba has recently unveiled the first 3D laptop that they claim does not require the need for special 3D glasses for watching movies or for playing 3D games. The laptop in question is the Qosmio F750, and it is said to go on sale next month.
It will feature a 120Hz, 15.6-inch screen that uses “a lenticular lens sheet to send different images to the left and right eyes.” The effect is said to vary, depending on how close you are to the screen, but is said to have a more pronounced effect than the Nintendo 3DS for example. If you’re wondering why that sounds familiar, it’s because Toshiba has already used that very same technology in their glasses-free 3D TV – the Regza GL1.
The laptop will be running on an Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce 540M graphics, a 640GB hard drive, Blu-ray XL drive, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS.
It also packs 6GB DDR3 worth of RAM, three USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port along with Harman Kardon stereo speakers and Dolby Advance Audio HDMI-CEC.
It also features a HD webcam, which it uses for eye-tracking, to better optimize the 3D display, which means that you’re not likely to gather your friends or family around your laptop to watch 3D movies together.
Weighing in at 2.8kg and with dimensions at 37.6mm thick, 380.55mm wide and 254mm deep, we can hardly call it portable or light, but if 3D movies and gaming is what you’re going for, this laptop should do the trick.
Sites who have managed to get their hands on the laptop have claimed that the 3D is not very impressive, as slight change in head movement will cause the image to become distorted, although they have noted that this could be due to the fact that the models they receive may not be the final or polished product that Toshiba intends to put out into the market. Price wise we are looking at about 1,300 Euros and it should be going on sale next month.
