Ultrabooks look set to light up CES 2012, but do remember that life comprises of far more than just Ultrabooks – stereoscopic 3D vision also has a lot to do with that. Granted, the sales of 3D TVs have not really taken off in a big way over the past couple of years, partly due to the ongoing global economic crunch that does not seem to be getting any better this year, but that does not mean stereoscopic 3D technology needs to be put off. No sir, LG intends to bring 3D technology to the masses in the form of a couple of notebooks – the LG P535 and A540. The former will be a Cinema 3D notebook that targets those who want a comprehensive yet portable entertainment experience, sporting a slim body with a 15.6″ LED backlight display. Tipping the scales at just 2.2kg, it is 27% lighter compared to its closest rivals where 15″ 3D notebooks are concerned. The P535 will be powered by a second generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GT 630M graphics card.
As for the LG A540, this notebook offers glasses-free 3D entertainment alongside enhanced 4.1 channel audio, also running on the second generation Intel Core i7 processor with quad-core processors. No idea on how long your eyes can hold out with the glasses-free 3D display, and how much of a hit the battery will take remains to be seen. Perhaps I might want to wait for this segment of the hardware to mature further before committing my hard-earned money. [Press Release]
