Toshiba debuts first notebook to play 3D Blu-ray content

By on
Toshiba has announced the world's first notebook to play 3D Blu-ray content, the 15.6-inch Satellite A665. The machine utilizes an LED-backlit 1366x768 120Hz display along with WinDVD BD and Nvidia's 3D Vision software for 3D Blu-ray playback. Inside is a quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTS 350M GPU with a gig of VRAM, and up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM as well as 750GB of storage.

Additional details include gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, three USB 2.0 ports (one eSATA combo), a multi-card reader, HDMI-out, a 1.3MP camera, analog and DVB-T hybrid TV tuner, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The Satellite A665 will also be available without 3D, and according to the spec sheets, that iteration will be configurable with a Core i5 processor.

The system is set to debut in Japan late next month under the name "Dnyabook TX/98MBL" ("Satellite A665" is for Europe and presumably the US). Pricing hasn't been mentioned, but Engadget reports that it's expected to be listed in the vicinity of $2,700.
