Toshiba launches powerful 3D-capable laptop Toshiba has announced the launch of the 3D-capable Satellite A665 this week, powered by Nvidia's Vision tech.
The laptop is not "cheap," but will pack some very impressive specs. The Satellite A665 has a 15.6-inch diagonal TruBrite LED backlit LCD display, a 120Hz refresh rate, a rewriteable Blu-ray Disc drive and integrated stereo Harman/Kardon speakers.



Under the hood is a Intel Core i7 processor with TurboBoost, a Nvidia GeForce GTS 350M, 1GB of GDDR3 video memory and an LED backlit keyboard. Additionally, the device has 4GB DDR3 RAM, a 640GB HDD, runs of Windows 7, has 802.11b/g/n wireless, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, Bluetooth V2.1 + EDR10, an HD impact sensor, a 12-cell battery, one eSATA/USB combo port with USB sleep-and-charge, three USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port and integrated webcam with face recognition.

Bundled with the computer is the Nvidia 3D Vision kit, which is an emitter, wireless active shutter glasses, and 3D playback software.

Says Nvidia (via TG): "Consumers are embracing 3D...There is clearly a huge amount of pent-up demand for games, films (like Avatar) and other content. [Now], we at Nvidia want people to get excited about 3D because it is better, not different. And they are - because we are driving PC gaming and entertainment to a whole new level, right now, in 2010."

The laptop will sell with a base price of $1600.

It depends. While I like the power of this laptop, they could've went w/HP or even Sony as a manufacturer backer, but that's just my opinion. You're probably right though, the masses of not just US, but also selective places around the world might flock to this shiny piece of silicon and plastic.

It's hard to say the laptop is not worth the price tag either...

Why didn't they build the emitter into the laptop? That looks so stupid to have to plug in an adapter to enable 3D on a 3D laptop.
