Acer Aspire AS5738DGIt’s somewhat difficult to innovate in the laptop segment, after all there’s a limit on how slim you can go before you start losing the thing between the couch cushions. So for inspiration some developers go to great lengths to bring new ideas to the mobile PC user.

The Acer Aspire AS5738DG sports a 3D LCD display which should pop your images, videos, and light gaming right off of your screen. PC Magazine has the hands-on:

Perhaps the neatest gimmick this year, and a first on an inexpensive laptop such as the AS5738DG, is the built-in 3D hardware. It’s laid on top of a generic-looking 15.6-inch widescreen that houses 1,366-by-768 resolution display (this resolution is a must for optimal 3D viewing).

Yes you’ll have to wear a pair of shutter glasses for the 3D effect so you’re bound to get the odd looks while on the road and not just at home.
