Acer10月下旬推出3D筆電後,緊接著Asus亦於1118日發表其3D筆電,頗有互別苗頭、較勁十足之意味。不管如何,由這兩家知名筆電大廠,帶頭推出3D筆電,是否代表著正式向世人宣告3D時代的來臨?

從技術角度來分析:Acer筆電(「緯創」代工)的螢幕貼有一層透明Retarder Film  (應該是使用日本Arisawa公司的3D技術),其功能是將水平交錯(Row Interlaced)之奇、偶水平線光的方向,朝左(奇數線)、右(偶數線)各旋轉一個角度,再透過Circular的偏光鏡(Polarizer),在特定的距離與角度(這是因為Retarder Film是貼在螢幕上,其與影像有個面板厚度的間距,所以會有俯仰視角觀賞距離的限制),即可觀賞到3D立體影像。因此,其左右影像的垂直解析度各會減少一半,不過其3D畫質還是可以被接受。另外,其使用了DDD公司 (註:「緯創」與「Arisawa」都是DDD公司的股東) 3D Game DriverTriDef 3D Player(宣稱可以Real-Time 2D3D);但結果是:其TriDef 3D Player Real-Time 2D3D(相片與影片)效果只是將畫面處理成由螢幕裡面斜出來而已,根本談不上真正3D立體(層次分明)效果只是噱頭而已!倒是3D Games可以玩一玩;反觀Asus3D筆電,則完全是使用nVidia 3D Vision的外接式3D套件(無線LCS眼鏡與紅外線發射器),惟其螢幕是120Hz,所以充其量只能說是支援nVidia 3D Vision的筆電而已了無新意。如果您過去在桌上型電腦使用過nVidia 3D Vision,則其使用在筆電上應該不會感覺有特別驚豔之處。不過其3D畫質,因為是使用了nVidia 3D Driver,所以支援Full Screen Resolution (全畫面解析度)Page-Flipping 3D顯示模式,完全不降垂直解析度,同時也沒有視角與觀賞距離的限制,這點nVidia 3D Vision是功不可沒。另外,買了Asus 3D筆電者,還可以使用在DLP3D投影與120Hz 3D電視(SamsungMitsubishi的背投電視),可謂一舉數得,這也是沾nVidia 3D Vision的光。

我個人的看法:目前這兩家所推出的3D筆電,出貨量應該不大,主要是在測試市場的水溫,現在尚難斷言其後市發展。要持續支撐其銷售量,最重要的動能(Momentum)是除了3D Gaming之外,還有沒有其它的主流應用(如支援2010SonyPanasonic主推3D TV所必須的Blu-Ray 3D電影Fujifilm最近所推出Real 3D Camera 3D立體攝影)?因為市場上玩家級的3D Gamers畢竟有限(更何況真正玩家級的3D Gamers大都是使用桌上型電腦配合大螢幕未必會喜歡3D筆電),看熱鬧的人還是居多,如果是要吸引「嚐鮮」性質的消費者,則其售價不宜太高(3D功能的價差約NT$1,000較能被接受)。其實,單從3D Gaming的個案來分析,過去一、二年前即有「奇美」所投資的iZ3D nVidia與韓國Zalman所合作的3D Monitor,更早在56年前,SharpNEC各有推出一款15吋的3D筆電(2D/3D可切換) Actius RD3D LaVie,其使用2-View Parallax Barrier技術(不需戴3D立體眼鏡)3D品質相當優良,也是使用nVidia 3D Driver來玩3D Games,最後竟以US$500(原價US$3,000)來傾銷庫存(Dumping)「前車覆,可為後車之鑒」以上產品都是主打3D Gaming,但其銷售成績皆不理想,並非其3D品質不佳,其主要原因乃在於「玩家級的3D Gamers畢竟有限看熱鬧的人居多」。當3D產品尚未發展到成為主流商品,也就是說它還是非必需品的時候,對於一般廣大的消費者而言,價格應該是最大的考量,如果筆電廠想要促銷的是筆電,則應該將3D的功能當成附贈品(Bonus)或小部份成本轉價給消費者,而大部份成本應由筆電廠來吸收,這樣才有機會吸引更多「看熱鬧」的消費者;反觀這兩台3D筆電在台灣的價格策略,顯然是要消費者去承擔大部份(或更多)3D功能的價差,將不利其後市發展。

You knew it was bound to happen. The 3D revolution started with the TV, but now it's seeping into everything. Cinemas, projectors and now notebook PCs. Before long, we're guessing a 3D version of the Nintendo DSi and Sony PSP will be out and about. All possible kidding aside, Asushas just announced that it'll be matching Acer's 3D laptop launch with one of its own. The G51J 3D is a modified version of the gaming notebook we reviewed just over a week ago, so if it's depth and wild glasses you're after, hopefully you held off.

Reportedly, this is the planet's first notebook to utilize
NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. Within, you'll find a GeForce GTX 260M GPU (1GB DDR3), a Core i7 processor, Windows 7 64-bit, and a pair of glasses to experience the 3rd dimension. It'll be available in North America "soon" for $1699.99.

In other news, Asus is also introducing a new Windows Home Server, the TS Mini. Designed to serve homes and small businesses, the $349.99 (starting) server is up for pre-order now and is equipped with an Intel Atom CPU. It's capable of backing up data from up to ten computers daily, and it features six onboard USB ports, two eSATA ports, a year of free 500GB storage over the Web, Gigabit Ethernetand either 500GB or 2TB of hard drive space.
