The A665 is a 15.6″ (1366×768 resolution) laptop that will be powered by an Intel Core i7 processor (one of Intel’s newest processors for laptops). It’ll be equipped with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 500 GB hard drive.

The laptop will come with preinstalled 3D content and a pair of 3D glasses will be included in the package. In terms of audio, the A665 will be equipped with Harman Kardon stereo speakers, Dolby Advanced Audio, and a Sleep-and-Music function, which allows users listen to music even if the computer is in sleep mode.
The Toshiba A665 laptop’s release is expected sometime this July. Pricing is not yet known.
We hope you still have money left after Black Friday, because for the hefty price of $1700, you’ll be able to get your hands on the upcoming ASUS G51J 3D which claims to bring “real 3D” to laptops. Using NVIDIA’s 3D vision technology, the G51J is already able to play over 400 games.
The system employs shutter glasses, which is supposed to outperform the Polaroid lens alternative currently used by the Acer’s Aspire 5738DG. As for the ASUS G51J, it will include a GeForce GTX 260M card which boasts 1GB of DDR memory. It’s time to start saving!
“NVIDIA® is excited about the world’s first 3D Vision notebook coming from ASUS,” said Phil Eisler, General Manager of 3D Vision business unit at NVIDIA. “The ASUS G51J 3D notebook will set the standard by which gaming and 3D notebooks will be judged. Congratulations to ASUS for achieving this monumental milestone!”
