Clevo W860CU 3D and ASUS G51JX-3D bring three-dee to US laptopers

Darren Murph

NVIDIA teased us with the introduction of the 3D-ready G51JX back at Computex (you may remember it as one of the founding "3D PCs"), and now AVADirect is bringing that very machine to US soil. Said rig boasts a 15.6-inch display, Core i7-720QM processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory and a 1GB GeForce GTS 360M GPU. Better still, Clevo's W860CU offers an identically sized display, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 285M (1GB), Core i5 or i7 CPU options and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Both units ship with all the necessary 3D Vision components to get your 3D kick on right from the box, with the ASUS going for around $1,600 and the Clevo for $1,800. Humility is free with purchase, we're told.
