HP ENVY 17 3D Notebook Now Available

HP’s ENVY 17 multimedia notebook with a 3D display that we previously announced is now available starting at $1,599; it uses AMD’s active shutter technology to deliver 3D video and images.

The ENVY 17 3D series has a 17.3-inch full HD (1920×1080 resolution) display. It comes with Intel Core i7 quad-core processors, an ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB graphics card, 6-8GB of RAM, and up to 2TB of hard drive space via two internal drive bays. Other features include a backlit keyboard and HD webcam.

One of the more interesting aspects of this notebook is its use of AMD’s active-shutter technology, which uses powered glasses to achieve the 3D effect. Most notebooks up to this point have used either passive 3D, which simply uses a 120Hz screen and polarized glasses — or Nvidia’s 3D VISION, which uses active shutter powered glasses like AMD.

The HP ENVY 17 3D is available now from $1,599.
