Toshiba Qosmio F755 first glasses-free 3-D laptop

Today Toshiba introduced the world's first glasses-free 3-D notebook. The Qosmio F755 has an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDA GeForce 540M graphics, as well as Harmon Kardon speakers, a Blu-ray drive and HDMI output. It can display content in either 2-D or 3-D.

the Qosmio F755 has enough power to do some gaming thanks to that Core i7 2nd Gen and the NVIDIA 540 M. The price is pretty decent as well given that it’s got 3D capabilities as well

This allows for a "broad viewing zone from which to view 3-D content," according to the press release. But this may also mean two people won't be able to watch the screen in 3-D at the same time.

In another effort to make 3-D more compelling to consumers, yesterday Panasonic, Sony and Samsung teamed up to announce their support of the "Full HD 3-D Glasses Initiative," which would mean one brand of glasses could be worn to view all of their 3-D TV models.

It’s an interesting offering as the other Qosmio X775-3DV78 laptops have NVIDIA 3D Vision tech and GeForce GTX 560M GPUs in them which, of course, requires the NVIDIA active shutter glasses to see the 3D. Those are $200 more and offer a 17.3" screen, 1.25TB of storage as well as the 1.5GB GTX 560M for 3D Vision.
