Asus G51JX-3DE Laptop With Integrated IR Transmitter for 3D Vision

September 1st, 2010 · 7 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

You can consider this as the next logical step – integrating the infrared transmitter for the 3D Vision shutter glasses inside the frame of the laptop’s screen, so that you will no longer need to carry with you a separate transmitter, just the glasses. And Asus just did that in their updated G51JX-3DE gaming laptop with integrated 120Hz LCD panel that is already starting to hit the market, so you can purchase it even at the moment should you decide you need a 3D capable notebook.

Apart for the integration of the Nvidia IR transmitter for the active shutter glasses there are not a lot of changes as compared to the previous versions of the G51 series with 3D capabilities. In this 15.6-Inch laptop you get a 1366×768 LED-backlit 120Hz LCD display, Intel i7-720QM Quad-Core processor at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.8 GHz, Nvidia 360M GTS graphic card with 1GB DDR5 video memory, 500GB 7200RPM hard drive, Blu-Ray Combo Drive which can be used for Blu-ray 3D movies playback with the right software player, 6GB DDR3 1066MHz system memory along with Windows Home Premium 64-bit Operating System.

The good news is that Asus won’t be the first and only one to integrate the IR transmitter inside the laptop, others will do the same and there is some information going around that Acer will very soon also have a new 3D-capable 3D Vision laptop with integrated IR transmitter too, but we’ll have to wait and see if it turns out true.

The Asus G51JX-3DE 3D-capable laptop is currently available with a price of $1,686.99 USD…

    Wonder why they haven’t done this with the 1st release. Do they really just had the idea recently? I had this in mind for a long time…

    Can someone verify the price and post?
    Here’s why: I’m an amazon prime member, and it seems they “bump” the price up if you are a member. When I check it, it says the price is just over 1700.
    What price do you folks show?

    It seems that they’ve quickly increased the price to $1,714.98 USD…

    This would be a pretty good deal if it can output to a 3d tv. Does anyone know if it can?

    It should be able to with the help of the Nvidia 3DTV Play software…
