Toshiba Launches Satellite A660-042 – Industry’s First Blu-ray 3D Format Notebook

Toshiba today announced the introduction of Toshiba Satellite A660-042 Notebook, claimed to be the industry’s first 3D notebook PC featuring playback of 3D content in Blu-ray 3D.


This new revolutionary Toshiba Satellite A660-042 notebook PC is equipped with WinDVD BD for Toshiba and NVIDIA 3D Vision software and hardware, allowing user play back content in Blu-ray 3D format, providing consumers with a rich and vivid 3D experience when used in conjunction with active-shutter glasses.

The Toshiba Satellite A660-042 3D notebook features a 15.6-inch LED backlight LCD display and it is capable of playing 3D Blu-ray titles and games. Adopting the same active shutter technology that has made 3D a hit in movie theatres around the world, the Satellite A660-042 comes equipped with wireless 3D active shutter LCD glasses that lighten and darken at the same fast refresh rate of 120Hz5 LCD.

Since each eye receives a slightly different image at the same time, the result is a high quality, dynamic stereoscopic image: full 3D.  The system’s high level performance is enhanced by the integration of NVIDIA’s latest graphic processor, the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 350M, and 1GB Video RAM dedicated to graphics processing.

In addition to being the first 3D format notebook on the market, the Toshiba Satellite A660-042 notebook continues Toshiba’s commitment to providing notebook options that perfectly merge outstanding performance with a sophisticated aesthetic.

Featuring a Velvety Black casing with chrome accents and a raised-tile keyboard, this sleek Satellite A660-042 notebook is also equipped with the latest Intel Core i7 processor, high quality, harman/kardon stereo speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio and 640GB of hard disk drive space.
