Acer 3D laptop coming in October Campbell Kan, Acer mobile computing VP has noted today that the computer company is currently developing a laptop with 3D display that will be available by the end of October.
The model will have a 15.6 inch display, and will recognize 3D movies natively. Users can also convert their standard movies into 3D. Kan was unclear about how 3D gaming would work. As with most current 3D displays, you will require stereoscopic glasses to view in 3D.

The notebook will also run Windows 7 which is set for a September release. Kan also noted there is a model being created that will not require special glasses but there is no timetable set for it as there are lots of developing setbacks.

meh, would nuch rather see 3D in a movie theatre where it rightfully belongs nothing like a BIG screen and BIG sound to top off a good 3D movie would be hell of alot better than tiny ass screen with tinny sound on a laptop IMO. . . - BLUEBOY

Cool.

I always wanted to be able to see my dvds in 3D. especially if you have software which can make dvds into 3D.

Don't realy care about 3D laptops...however, I hope this takes off and I can start gaming in true 3D. Just imagine...playing games on a 42" 3D LCD...with no stupid glasses.
