If you'd like to stay ahead of the technology curve with your next notebook computer, the Samsung RF712 3D is definitely worth a look.

Not only does the RF712 3D come with built-in support for the latest 3D-viewing technology, but it also has all the power needed to process and display that content in order to optimise your experience.

The RF712 3D has a 17.3-inch Full HD SuperBright Plus Display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, and is powered by a second generation Intel Core i7 2630QM CPU running at 2GHz. It comes with 8GB of DDR3 memory and a massive 1.5TB hard disk drive to store all your 3D movies and files.

To deal with the extra dimension in graphics, the RF712 3D is equipped with a AMD Radeon HD6650M graphics processor with 2GB of dedicated graphics memory and comes with TriDef 3D conversion software pre-installed.

The result is that you can now transform 2D pictures and video clips into 3D right on the RF712 3D. And yes, you get a pair of 3D glasses with every RF712 3D.

You also get a 1.3-megapixel HD webcam, support for HDMI so you can connect to your TV, and USB 3.0 for fast file transfers.
