Acer Aspire 5738DG: 15.6-inch 3D Notebook PC


3D Notebook Acer‘s Aspire 5738DG is a 15.6-inch notebook PC with a cool feature: 3D. The resolution is 1366 x 768 on the TriDef 3D LCD. Graphics is powered by ATI’s Radeon HD 4570 with 512MB video memory. Other specs include:

  • CPU: 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T6600
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Hard Disk: 320GB
  • Connectivity: WiFi BGN
  • Optical: DVD Playback
  • Battery: 6-cell 4400mAh Lithium-Ion
  • Price: US$779.99

Average You’ll need to wear the included 3D glasses. PC Magazine took it for a spin and found the 3D effects cool but gaming and video converted to 3D were not as cool. For consumers, I would think that those two things (watching movies and playing games) are the two most important activities that can be enhanced by 3D. I think we have a ways to go to perfect 3D on our computers.

I’ve tested a few 3D displays and after a while I do end up getting a headache and my eyes are pleading me to look somewhere else. The 5738DG without the 3D glasses didn’t create any negative effects according to PC Magazine.
