Acer goes 3D with new Win 7 laptop
Acer will release a new laptop to coincide with Thursday's Windows 7 launch that can display movies and games in 3D while allowing everyday applications to appear in their usual 2D format.
The Aspire 5738DG has a 15.6-inch 3D screen, as well as software and special glasses from a company called TriDef to enable the 3D experience. The laptop, a powerful desktop replacement, delivers images "that literally pop from the screen," according to Acer.
The TriDef system displays 3D content such as movies and games, and can also take standard 2D content and make it appear 3D, Acer said. TriDef also sells software called TriDef 3-D Experience through its Web site, which makes programs like Google Earth appear in 3D.
To make watching 3D movies more compelling, Acer has built Dolby surround sound into the laptop. Users can also run common applications like spreadsheets and e-mail programs in 2D.
