The Acer Aspire 5745DG takes a different approach in provision of 3D images compared to some other laptops set to arrive. It doesn’t come with the 3D polarized glasses (the cheaper ones which are common in movie theaters), it comes with active shutter glasses {like the coming with the 3D TVs} and has a built-in IR receiver.
