Toshiba dynabook TX98MBL plays 3D out of the box

Toshiba staked out a first in the PC field today with the dynabook TX/98MBL. The 15.6-inch system not only stands as Toshiba's first notebook with a 3D-capable display but the first anywhere to play Blu-ray movies. A combination of a 120Hz LCD, a GeForce GTS 350M with 3D Vision support, and a special version of WinDVD BD display the extra dimension with movies when using (bundled) active shutter glasses.

As a notebook, the dynabook sits in the middle of Toshiba's desktop replacements with a quad-core 1.73GHz Core i7, 4GB of RAM and a 640GB hard drive as its defining traits. The 3D effect isn't limited to movies and should also work with games and photos.

The system debuts first in Japan, where it will be ready in late July for the equivalent of $2,723. Most Toshiba notebooks reach the US, and a version of the TX/98MBL is very probable for the US under the Qosmio badge.
