Acer outs first 3D notebook in Japan

There are already a number of notebook and other computers on the market that support 3D. Acer has rolled out its first 3D notebook in Japan called the AS5745DG-A54E/L. That is a very long name for the machine and it works in conjunction with NVIDIA 3D Vision tech.

That NVIDIA 3D Vision tech uses active glasses and a few of the machines on the market supporting 3D are using passive tech. The new Acer notebook has some very nice hardware inside with graphics via NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M GPU, and Intel Core i5-460M CPU running at 2.53GHz and 4GB of RAM.

The screen of the machine is 15.6-inches and has the needed 120Hz refresh rate for the 3D Vision tech to work. Other features of the notebook include a 640GB HDD, HDMI output, Bluetooth, WiFi, and a 1.3MP webcam. The NVIDIA 3D Vision glasses and required hardware are included. The machine is expected to hit stores in Japan in early December for under 100,000 yen.
