After spending some time with the Satellite P755-3DV20 I was left with mixed feelings about this notebook. On one hand, Toshiba delivers a complete 3D entertainment experience for a modest price ($890 "street price" as of this writing). On the other hand, Toshiba was able to make this 3D notebook affordable by using the same chassis used in cheaper budget laptops and that's not ideal for a more expensive multimedia PC. The 3D performance is also something of a mixed bag. The Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics provide barely enough performance for older 3D games which means this notebook is really only intended for watching 3D movies on the road or when connected to your 3D HDTV.

If you've had even a sparkle of interest in true-3D laptops, but have been turned off by the field so far, now might be a good time to revisit it. Equipped with Nvidia’s 3D Vision graphics technology, this Satellite model delivers realistic 3D movies and games in a stylish 15-inch chassis. Its battery life and port selection are mediocre, however.

The Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 is an impressive all-purpose laptop, if you can get past the less-than-impressive design. The plastic exterior is nice for a cheaper, less specced-out machine, but it doesn't really convey "3D multimedia powerhouse." Still, if you're looking for a nice multimedia and casual-gaming laptop, the P755-3DV20 performs solidly.

The Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 is an affordable 3D-enabled laptop that is loaded with multimedia features that makes it stand out from the rest. You get a Blu-ray player, good Nvidia graphics, 3D-capabilities, USB 3.0 and Harman Kardon audio. While all this is great, it does lack in battery life and viewing angles.

Why is 3D in laptops still a novelty? Chalk it up to the extra cost of 3D technology, the awkwardness of wearing special glasses, and the lack of killer apps for the average user. The 3D-enabled Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 is one of the more affordable 3D-enabled laptops, but it lacks the horsepower we've seen in more robust 3D gaming laptops.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:
Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a Japanese conglomerate or technology group. The company was established in 1939 and in 1978 Toshiba became the official company name.

68%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
