Ultrabooks haven’t exactly taken the market by storm, but there are still those who expect the segment to take off next year. But what would next year’s ultrabooks be like? We know that Ivy Bridge-toting ultrabooks are certainly on the cards, with many models expected to debut at CES 2012. However, there’s another key area where plenty of room for improvement exists.Well, we are talking about displays. A new report suggests that at least a couple of major vendors have plans to launch ultrabooks with full HD displays next year.
If you’re on the lookout for a 3D monitor, the number of options at your disposal has just gone up by one with the launch of ViewSonic’s V3D231 LED monitor. Meanwhile, those of you who can’t stand 3D displays that require special glasses can safely add the V3D231 to the list of 3D monitors to avoid.
ViewSonic has added another projector ot its Pro 8 Series lineup, this newest one being the Pro8200. The Pro8200 supports Full HD 1080p with a native 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and comes with an advanced 7-segment color wheel.
Other features include 2,000 lumens, a 4000:1 contrast ratio, two HDMI 1.3 inputs with HDCP compliance, component video input, S-Video, a pair of 10W speakers, an an integrated closed captioning controller.
ViewSonic touts its Pro8200 as an ideal candidate for both home entertainment and commercial AV applications, such as corporate boardrooms, auditoriums, and churches.
If you are planning to bite into the 3D hype, LG's Xnote A510 3D Notebook could help you get started. You might be wondering what really sets it apart from the rest. According to LG, the Xnote A510 is “the world's first premium notebook offering cinematic 3D experience at near Full HD quality.”
Available in blue-black and champagne gold, the A510 features a 15.6-inch Full HD 3D LED LCD display, an Intel Core i7 CPU (840QM or 740QM), and NVIDI GeForce GT 425M graphics with 1GB of dedicated DDR3 video memory. The A510 will ship with polarized 3D glasses and a set of clip-on 3D lenses for the bespectacled.
Having sensed a dearth of 3D content, LG has decided to ship its TriDef 2D-to-3D content conversion software along with the notebook. It is slated to hit Asia, South America, the Middle East and Africa in October.
