Shades on for the first 3D laptop

Enjoyed Avatar? Desperate to recreate that immersive 3D experience in your local Starbucks? Then Toshiba have just the thing: the catchily-named Dynabook TX/98MBL, the first laptop to play back Blu-Ray discs in full 3D.

Boasting 1,366 x 768 pixels, the laptop has a hefty 1GB of dedicated video RAM to help power the 3D effect. It's expected to retail for around $2,7000 when it appears in the US later this year, but you'll need to shell out around $100 for some fancy 'active shutter' 3D glasses to take advantage. In other words, no, you can't use the ones you nicked from the cinema after Clash of the Titans 3D.
