Samsung launches its first 3D notebook
Wednesday 21 July 2010
Electronics makers are hurtling towards a 3D world - a place where all our devices will display images in three dimensions regardless of whether we are sitting at home in front of a TV, playing games on a portable game console or traveling across country with a laptop.
Hot on the heels of brands such as Asus, Lenovo, Sharp, Toshiba, and Samsung, LG Electronics has announced it will join the growing list of laptop manufacturers investing in 3D laptop technology. Its first entry into the 3D laptop market is a 3D-capable notebook computer called the LG R590 3D.
The LG R590 3D is equipped with a 15.6-inch screen, an Intel Core i7 processor, SRS Tru-Surround HD, and an optional Blu-ray drive. Included in the package is one pair of slim, lightweight polarized glasses.
LG will also add a 3D gaming monitor (the W63D) and its first dual-engine, single lens, full HD 3D projector (the CF3D) to its 2010 lineup of 3D products, said the company in a July 19 announcement.
The LG R590 3D will be launched in Korea in July. The notebook will become available globally in the weeks to follow.
No official price was announced but according to some reports the notebook will be priced from $1,331.
