The laptop division of LG has announced its latest creation: a notebook that is capable of displaying and capturing 3D content without requiring extra hardware.

The 15.6-inch 3D LG Xnote A530 laptop features a Full HD (1080p) 3D LCD screen that uses LG’s Film Patterned Retarder tech to recreate 3D images using passive glasses. The company claims that using passive 3D glasses results in a brighter image than conventional shutter glasses. The laptop includes pair of 3D glasses and a pair of clip-on 3D lenses for people who already wear glasses.

The notebook is powered by Intel’s second generation Core i7 processors, up to 8 GB of RAM and has an Nvidia GeForce GT 555M graphics processing unit with 1 GB or 2 GB dedicated memory. It also packs a 750 GB hard disk drive backed by a 4 GB solid state drive, and has two webcams, enabling users to capture 3D or 2D videos and photos.

The 3D A530 also boasts a DVD or Blu-Ray combo drive, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection, Gigabit Ethernet, SRS Wide 3D sound system, a fingerprint reader, USB 3.0 port, 7-in-1 card reader, HDMI out and a 6-cell battery.

“With 3D becoming ever more popular, the logical next step is to let users make their own 3D content and watch it on a top-quality 3D screen. And that’s just what our new A530 does,” said LG.

The LG Xnote A530 3D laptops will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) this month and will be released worldwide afterwards.
