You don't have to look very hard to realize that the big feature that various manufacturers in the tech industry are pushing this year is 3D. The number of 3D capable computers, Blu-ray player's and TVs is constantly increasing on the market today even though by most accounts consumers aren't adopting 3D in the capacity that manufacturers hoped. That hasn't stopped Toshiba from pulling the covers off a new 3D notebook called the Satellite A665 3D.
The notebook uses NVIDIA 3D Vision technology and ships with a single pair of active 3D glasses. The screen of the notebook is a 15.6-inch HD TruBrite LED backlit offering with a 120Hz refresh rate. The CPU options for the machine include a Core i5-460M or a Core i7-740QM both with Turbo Boost technology inside. NVIDIA's GeForce GTS 350M GPU handles the video action.
The Blu-ray drive can burn to DVD media and has Label Flash technology. The onboard sound system for the notebook is from harman/kardon and has Dolby Advanced Audio tech. Other features include up to 6GB of RAM, 640GB of storage, a HDMI 1.4 output, WiFi, optional WiMax, and a 6-cell standard battery. Bluetooth and a 12-cell battery are both optional as well. The machine will ship in October with a price starting at $1299.99.
