The Toshiba Satellite A665-3DV 3D gaming laptop gives any user a jumpstart into the world of 3D with NVIDIA built-in vision technology, an Intel Core i5 processor and more for $1,050. Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey take a look at the 3D tech, glasses and more!
What You Need to Know
As 3D gaming laptops go, this one is pretty sleek
It’s about 1.5” thick and weighs just over 6 lbs.
In addition to playing games, it's a productivity laptop, too
The touch-pad is multi-touch, so you can pinch, zoom, and rotate, though it's still not as seamless as Apple's trackpads
The keyboard takes a little getting used to since the keys give a little too easily
We are excited that it's backlit, though this is something every laptop should have
One thing we noticed is that your wrist rests right over the touch-pad when you're gaming, but there's a button that will turn the touch-pad off so you won't accidentally move the mouse
Overall, it was a pleasure to game on for long periods of time
Our 3DMark Vantage benchmarks yielded a very respectable score for a laptop this affordable
It shouldn't have a problem playing any game out right now, even in 3D, but you won't be able to max out the settings completely
The 3D transmitter is also built in to the laptop, so all you need is the glasses and you're ready to go
