Toshiba Qosmio F750 laptop: Price, release and hands-on video

By Updated on

Back at the end of May we provided our readers with a few details regarding the ASUS ROG G53SX gaming notebook, which as we mentioned comes with a glasses-free 3D display, a second-generation Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M graphics card. Now we have news of another new glasses-free 3D laptop, only this time it is the Qosmio F750 model from Toshiba.

As noted in a recent engadget.com article by Sharif Sakr, the Toshiba Qosmio F750 3D laptop comes with a 15.6-inch screen that offers a full HD resolution, as well as the ability to display both 2D and 3D images on the screen at the same time, which is something that the ASUS ROG G53SX notebook is also capable of doing. The Qosmio F750 also features a 120Hz refresh rate that will eliminate blur or ghosting.

The Toshiba Qosmio F750 is powered by a 2nd-generation Intel Core i7 processor running at 2GHz (up to 2.90GHz with Turbo Boost Technology) and comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GT540M graphics card, ensuring that it handles both the latest video games and demanding programs with ease. In terms of audio, the F750 comes with integrated Harmon Kardon stereo speakers and Dolby Advanced Audio optimization technology.

Other specs include a HD webcam with eye tracking technology, a 640GB SATA hard disk drive, a multi-card reader, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS connectivity, HDMI and VGA outputs, three USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port. As for pricing and availability, the Toshiba Qosmio F750 is priced up at £1,300 ($2,100) and will be available from an undisclosed date in August.

The guys at engadget.com got to spend a bit of hands-on time with the Toshiba Qosmio F750 glasses-free 3D laptop recently, which you can see in the video we’ve embedded below this post. The software wasn’t as production-ready as the device itself, according to Sharif. Unfortunately they only got to see a few 3D video clips, and weren’t able to witness the simultaneous 2D and 3D in action.

Having said that, the videos they did see were pretty impressive. Another thing they pointed out was that the eye-tracking system was remarkably quick, although the adjustment of the 3D effect was a little slower at catching up.
