the only reason why 3d tvs haven't taken off is because everyone knows how fast HDTVs prices drop. I for one am waiting next year towards Chrismas. Also, this laptop show polarized lens just like 3d real movies are. Non of this active synced shutter glassess you got buy for each person, get expensive. They could design it to use the newer tech (3D now polarized) but NO they want to charge for each pair, Who wants stock and buy 5 -7 glassesat $50 plus a pop (I'm guessing price but you get the picture)? But if they used the same tech on HDTVs that they're using in the latop then now would need to buy glasses, you'd just take some glasses home from the movie theatres.
