In 2.8 kilos, Toshiba packed an Intel Core i7-2630QM quad-core processor ticking at 2.0GHz, 6GB DDR3 memory, NVIDIA GeForce GT540M graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, as well as 640GB 5400rpm hard drive and a dual-layer Blu-ray burner.

Connectivity is ensured through Wireless-N Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 3.0, three USB 2.0 and a single USB 3.0 port. The screen is LED-backlit 15.6" FullHD (1920×1080) screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, capable of displaying 3D in full resolution, unlike numerous passive solutions which actually only show half of the resolution (960×1080, very similar to interlaced mode).

In order to ensure the 3D effect, Toshiba is shipping the notebook with a 720p webcam which actively tracks your eyes and automatically adjusts the 3D effect depending on your head movement. For your listening pleasure, you can rely on Harman Kardon stereo speakers.

Naturally, all of this comes at a price – European retail price is set at 1,500 EUR or just about $2,100. The notebook is planned to arrive onto global market in August.
