It appears that the market for 3D mobile computers is still very much alive and kicking, as proven by Toshiba, whose dynabook collection of notebooks just grew by one, dubbed T551.Since Intel released its Sandy Bridge collection of central processing units, many systems based on them have been showcased and launched.
The processors are otherwise known as the second generation Core series and have high processing capabilities, in addition to better integrated graphics.
Still, said built-in graphics aren't even close to what discrete solutions form AMD and NVIDIA can do, this being the reason why Toshiba's newest dynabook 3D notebook is equipped with such a GPU.
The device is a mobile personal computer powered by the Core i7-2630QM, a quad-core mobile CPU with a base clock speed of 2.0 GHz.
Meanwhile, any and all heavy video tasks are handled by the NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M, whose memory is of 1 GB.
These two, along with the memory amount of up to 8 GB DDR3, are the main elements that make the dynabook T551 the mighty 3D laptop it is, besides the obligatory 3D screen and glasses of course.
That said, the size of the 120 Hz panel is of 15.6 inches and its native resolution is of 1,366 x 768 pixels (HD).
Additionally, Toshiba threw in a hard disk drive whose capacity is of 750 GB, plus a Blu-ray drive, for optical storage and multimedia playback.
Other specifications include the predictable Gigabit Ethernet, an USB 3.0 ports, 802.11n WiFi, a webcam and the HDMI output, which enables streaming to auxiliary monitors or 3D HDTVs.
Finally, the Toshiba Dynabook T551 will be loaded with the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit operating system. Japanese stores should begin to sell this particular machine starting in February, at a price that has not yet been given.
