More dimensional nonsense ahoy, skipper - Toshiba's 3D laptop
After holding our head in our hands at Virgin Media's 3D TV launch earlier this week, our hatred of all faddish products labelled 3D continues today. You would hope that at some point, manufacturers would stop flogging a dead horse to death again, and let it be. But no. Now it's Toshiba's turn to pump up the tyres of a market that isn't there.
Witness the bedazzlement of Toshiba's Satellite A665-3D laptop, which launches later this month. Just look at it. All the dull plastic lines of a laptop, but with 3D. There's a 15.6" 3D screen and HDMI output to push you favourite 3D nonsense to your 3D TV. Because you have one of them too, right? That's probably why Toshiba only supply one pair of glasses, because you're already 3D'd up and have pairs of glasses coming out your tit-ends.
How much to immerse yourself in this fancy pants world of 3D laptoporama? Well it's clocking in at $1,300, so let's say the thick end of £900 to you. Or you could just set fire to your own hands, and watch that in 3D instead. But before I rest my case for the prosecution, y'honour, witness this "wacky" video. Yes, he does look like a twat in those glasses, and yes - she really does say the laptop uses "turbo-boost technology". Get out of my sight.
