Despite the company’s glasses-free 3D laptop in CES, Toshiba is readying a version requiring the spectacles

The Japanese corporation Toshiba will be releasing its first new 3D laptop of the year that requires the user to wear glasses. Called the Dynabook T551, the 15.6” laptop is to succeed the Dynabook TX and is an upgrade to the Satellite A660 series. These previous models also included 3D capabilities and were released by Toshiba last year. Consumers will have to wait a little longer before getting their hands on Toshiba’s glasses-free 3D laptops demoed during this year’s CES.

The new T551 3D laptop will pack a punch in terms of specifications as it will be updated to include Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture with a Core i7 2630QM CPU, 8GB DDR3 RAM, and a Blu-Ray drive. For 3D playback, the laptop will equip the latest NVIDIA graphics architecture with the 540M graphics card to power its 1366 x 768 resolution screen.

The Dynabook T551 will be released next month in Japan for about $2450, but currently has an unannounced international release date.
