Toshiba Announces a Glasses-Free 3D Laptop

And it's not ridiculously expensive either - just $1,700.

There's an expectation that whenever a new technology hits the market, the price of that tech is going to be ridiculously high. It happened with HD TVs, Blu-ray players, and pretty much everything else that's come to the home theater market.

Glasses-free 3D seems to be a bit different - at least when it comes to smaller displays. The 3DS runs just $170 at this point and Toshiba's new laptop is similarly inexpensive. The new Qosimo F755 comes in at just $1,699 - that's $200 cheaper than their current 3D Qosimo laptop.

The new laptop offers you the ability to view both 2D and 3D content on the same screen - we're a little confused about what that means too - and can convert 2D content to 3D. It sports a Blu-ray player, a Core i7 processor, GeForce 540M graphics and a 750GB hard drive. The F755 will be available in mid-August.
