LG intros 3D notebook, gaming monitor and projectorBy Matthew DeCarlo
LG has announced several products today, including the company's first 3D notebook. The XNote R590 3D features an Intel Core i7 processor, a 1GB Nvidia GT 335M GPU, an optional Blu-ray drive and presumably most of the hardware seen on last year's XNote R590, except the 15.6-inch 3D display and polarizing glasses, of course. You'll also find TriDef software preloaded, which converts 2D video to 3D in real time. Pricing supposedly starts around $1,300 and although initial shipments are limited to South Korea, the machine should go global in August.
In addition to a new notebook, LG also introduced its W63D gaming monitor and CF3D projector - both of which are 3D-ready. The display measures 23 inches, has a 1080p resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and everything else you'd want on a standard TN-based LCD screen, while the projector transmits a full HD image through a single lens, can create up to a 200-inch picture, and comes with six pairs of glasses. Pricing and availability is a bit unclear but we've heard about $500 for the W63D and as much as $10,000 for the projector.
