Toshiba Unveils the First 3D Blu-ray Capable Laptop

Posted Wed Jun 9, 2010 at 01:00 PM PDT by Dick Ward

It's starting in Japan, but a US release could be coming soon.

So here's the scenario. You love 3D movies, but you travel a lot, so you can't justify purchasing a 3D TV for your home. You've got plenty of money to spend, and you don't mind having way too many wires on your desk.

If that sounds like you, then you're the perfect target for the Toshiba Dynabook TX-98MBL.

To be fair, it's not exactly a bad laptop. It's got a 15.6 inch LED backlit LCD display with a max resolution of 1366 x 768. It's packing an Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GTS 350M to handle graphics.

It also comes with NVIDIA 3DVision, which attaches to the laptop to let you watch 3D Blu-rays and play 3D games. You'll have to wear the glasses of course, and you'll need the 3DVision attachment to send them the signal.

The Dynabook TX-98MBL hits Japan at the end of July for right around $2,700.
