Laptop & 3D Output

Hi folks,

I'm pondering ditching my desktop altogether (it's old, bulky, underpowered and obviously not very mobile) in favour of a high-end, gamer spec, laptop.

I always liked having a large monitor to work on at home (and my current one is on the blink anyway) so at the same time I've been looking at some newer 3D capable monitors (namely the Alienware AW2310) and I'm wondering what is the deal with laptops and the ability to output (not display natively on their own screen) 3D to be displayed on a seperate 3D monitor.

Is there a particlar NVIDIA graphics chip that as long as the netbook has it it will be able to output over DVI and display 3D on the monitor?


Thanks,

Pete

Have a look at this:

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure how many laptops out there can output in 3D at this time. But chances are that the number is slim. Never the less, take a look at the link above and see where that leads you.
