HP today unveiled a new portfolio of 3D desktops for consumers; the new HP TouchSmart620 3D Edition PC, which brings 3D entertainment to an All-in-one PC. Users can create their own 3D videos and pictures with the TouchSmart’s built-in webcam and share them with their friends online or via the PC’s 23-inch (58.4 cm) Full HD display. The TriDef Ignition Game Player allows you to play all your games in 3D as well. The PC is now available at an MRP of Rs.92,999.

Featuring an intuitive and ergonomic design, the TouchSmart620 3D Edition reclines upto 60 degrees, enabling users to adjust the display’s position for a comfortable experience or reduce glare, while viewing 3D content with the Active Shutter 3D Glasses. In addition to exclusive HP features like LinkUp Technology and Beats Audio, the HP TouchSmart620 3D Edition also offers the latest version of HP’s exclusive TouchSmart software, premium graphics and processors. The next-generation TouchSmart 4.0 interface allows users to customize their user experience by multiplying the workspace with a scrolling desktop that expands horizontally, and dragging and dropping their favourite files and apps onto the desktop’s carousel. It’s the most intuitive and powerful touch experience to date as users can conveniently access Windows apps, desktop icons and built-for-touch applications on an ever-expanding desktop environment.

Other features include:

  • Integrated premium stereo speakers coupled with Beats Audio that offer studio-quality sound.
  • Blu-ray and DVD playback software, to watch cinema like Blu-ray movies from the comfort of the home with Full HD 3D 23-inch (58.4 cm) monitor and active 3D glasses
  • Faster processor-Core i5 2400, for perfect computing experience
  • 1GB Ultra-fast GDDR5 graphics memory
  • Win7 Home Premium (64-bit)

We’ve had a go with TriDef’s 3D on HP’s Envy 17 3D gaming notebook and to be honest, the quality of 3D wasn’t as good compared to Nvidia’s 3DVision. They haven’t mentioned what sort of graphics card they are using, since it’s TriDef, we are pretty sure it’s an AMD card. Priced at almost a lakh, it seems like quite an expensive proposition, as compared to building a 3D gaming rig of your own.
