New laptops take different approaches to 3D
By John Morris
My colleagues at ZDNet have been covering some of the 3D laptop announcements coming out of Toshiba and Lenovo. A boutique PC company, Origin, also unveiled a 3D laptop at E3 last week. These new notebooks join 3D models from Acer and Asus, which began shipping late last year.
