Tried a 3D Laptop, the Toshiba Satellite A665-3DV

During Toshiba’s 25th anniversary at the Republiq in Resort World where they introduced a variety of laptops, I was able to try out their Satellite A665-3DV 3D laptop.


The Satellite A665-3DV is a very powerful laptop built for multimedia and gaming. It is powered by harman/kardon® stereo speakers and comes with and NVIDIA® 3D VISIONâ„¢ Kit (glasses and IR emitter) to view 3D content.

I’m a fan of watching 3D movies after seeing Avatar in 3D but playing a game (Resident Evil) in 3D doesn’t quite match the experience when watching a 3D movie. Objects in the foreground looked like paper cutouts especially my character and the bullets ejecting from my gun. I think this has more to do with the game instead of the laptop itself.


3D laptops are very new to us Filipinos and it’s not going to be a common purchase for the average techie any time soon. However, there’s still a place for it for those who want to adapt early to the world of 3D in a smaller scale. The technology is already there so let’s just hope that games can adapt quickly.

Would you actually go for a 3D-capable laptop or spend the money on a more high-end system?
