Stereoscopic shootout: Rounding up the latest 3D laptops
By Dan Ackerman
There has been much talk over the past two years about 3D televisions, 3D movies, and even handheld 3D game consoles. Less widely discussed is one of the easiest and most versatile ways to get into stereoscopic 3D: the 3D laptop.
