So near - and yet so far. LG today cheerfully announced the "world's first premium notebook" capable of "offering cinematic 3D experience at near Full HD quality".

Near full HD? So almost - but not quite - 1080p. Better than 720p, possibly, but not 1080p.

Talk about damning yourself with faint praise.

The A510 probably isn't a bad machine. It has an Intel Core i7 CPU and an Nvidia GeForce GT 425M GPU with 1GB of DDR 3 video memory. The computer has SRS TruSurround HD audio on board.

Bundled TriDef software will convert 2D video to 3D on the fly, and comes with a pair of passive 3D specs.

Indeed, it may well be a very good PC. Well, near very good PC...

The A510 goes on sale next month, price TBC. ®
