I'm planning on purchasing a new laptop from Dell - they've a good special offer on 3D screen + glasses. I wonder if 3D screen will make any difference when working with non 3D app?

Cheers. Would you recommend to purchase BlueRay with 3D screen? is 3D stuff coming on BlueRays mainly? –  Dmitry Jan 6 '12 at 9:39
    
There's two use-cases for the 3D in that laptop, one is indeed for 3D Blu-Rays, the other is for 3D games, there's increasing numbers of games that support 3D right out of the box. –  Chopper3 Jan 6 '12 at 9:59
    
By the way, here's a nice report on the GPU in that laptop; notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-555M.41933.0.html –  Chopper3 Jan 6 '12 at 10:32
    
Assuming the display is capable of 120Hz, then there are benefits to using the display for 2D. –  sblair Jan 6 '12 at 14:49
