Earlier last month, Toshiba unveiled their Qosmio F750 at a UK event, and now the laptop has been rebranded and brought over to US soil. Unfortunately, a slightly niftier number doesn't appear to bring anything new to the table, and the two notebooks are very much the same.
Like the Qosmio F750, the 3D options offered in the F755 aren’t your basic home kit, as the included parallax technology tracks eye movements to better adjust 3D playback. In addition, the laptop allows simultaneous 2D and 3D viewing and also upscales content to 3D. Unfortunately, the upscaling functionality doesn’t extend to games, although Toshiba and NVIDIA are working together to provide the necessary drivers.
Otherwise, the notebook comes with a 2.0 GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU, 6 or 8GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M GPU, a 750GB HDD and a 15.6” display with a 2D resolution of 1920x1080 and a 3D resolution of 1366x768. The laptop is also equipped with USB 3.0, HDMI, a Blu-Ray drive and weighs in at 7.5 pounds.
For those in search of a solid 3D machine, then Toshiba’s F755 probably fits the bill. Furthermore, with a reasonable starting price of $1,699, the notebook might be a keeper when it hits shelves on the 16th of August.
