Asus' G72GX will feature an Intel Core i7 processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTM 160M graphics chip, 4GB of RAM, and dual 320GB hard drives. The company is also planning to release a 15.6" 3D notebook, the G51J3D, at some point this month. Apart from the smaller display, the G51J3D's core specifications will be on par with its larger counterpart.

    Shutter glasses? How could you possibly have any dignity using something like that in public?

    I have no problem wearing 3d goggles. The ones at the theater are very stylish. Got loads of pairs now there has been so many 3d films! I see 3d being as big as high definiton. I would note i don't have high def yet.

    @gobbybobby The shutter glasses and the glasses you get at the 3d movies are not the same. The shutter glasses have to be powered, which means they'll need to be corded or have rechargeable batteries. The glasses for the 3d movies at the theater use a refraction technology (someone please correct me if i'm wrong) that requires no power. As impressive as 3d is with shutter glasses, that is not going to be the right technology long term. The display is going to have to do all the 3d work.
