Acer is adding some depth to its line of Windows 7 computers appearing today: The company is introducing a laptop with a 3-D display.
The $780 Aspire 5738DG “delivers cinematic images that literally pop from the screen,” the company said in its release.
Why? Acer said it’s in anticipation of more 3-D games and movies, but the laptop can also “replicate a 3-D experience from standard 2-D content.” It also works in standard mode.
The 6-pound system comes with 3-D glasses, plus a 15.6-inch-diagonal display, Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 processor, 4 gigabytes of RAM and an ATI 4570 graphics card.
Now they’ve got to figure out a way to combine 3-D and multitouch input.
