Watch out, Acer. Rival PC manufacturer Asus has crafted not one, but two laptops with 3D displays, both designed to tempt gamers and film fans into parting with their cash. Asus_G51J3D_01 Asus' G51J3D: one of two 3D laptops the firm will launch over coming months Both models sit within Asus’ G series of gaming-focused laptops …
Seems a little perverse that 3D laptops are supporting 1920x1080 resolution when the best nVidia can manage with their recommended external monitors are 22" 1680x1050 displays.
Annoying stickers everywhere
Why oh why all this annoying little stickers just south of the keyboard? Who ever thought users would like it? Especially after a month or two, when they start peeling off? This one seems to be a veritable feast of multicoloured stickies.
Probably a good way of hiding the overall rubbish design of a laptop I guess; say what you want of their stuff, macs never have these tacky rubbish hanging around.

So agree with you. This trend of placing hard to remove stickers right where your wrists are going to rub is annoying. What is wrong with the box ? Leave my laptops free of stickers please.
now this is the biz... Forget those silly origami thermal holes, asus...
Huh? Cool 3d kit, and all you can think of is the stickers? They come off very easily, especially from the rubberized palm rests on the G51 series. How that compares to a Mac I don't know: I look for gear based on the specs (quite good on my G51) not the presence or absence of stickers.
If this costs over $1,000 then it is not worth it.
Active-shutter glasses are EXPENSIVE
Which is why you're only going to get one with the machine. I hope ASUS can mass-produce enough to bring the cost down.
15 people? Not likely..
That's assuming the technology has been tested with more than one pair of shutter glasses simultaneously - which I doubt.
