Mitsubishi unfurls a 92-inch 3D TV

The yet-unnamed model uses DLP rear-projection technology from Texas Instruments,

Mitsubishi expects its 92-inch 3D TV to be the largest consumer television on the market when it launches mid-year -- even if very few consumers can afford it.

The yet-unnamed model uses DLP rear-projection technology from Texas Instruments, rather than LCD, LED or plasma. It also includes Mitsubishi's Unisen sound system, which projects 5.1 Surround Sound from beam-steered speakers in front of the set.

The biggest obstacle to releasing these humongous TVs is getting enough light onto the screen, Mitsubishi's marketing vice president Frank DeMartin said. The demo unit on display at Mitsubishi's CES booth was set back in a dimly lit alcove, but DeMartin assured me that the television would look fine in well lit rooms.

Other features include four HDMI outputs, USB media playback, a universal remote control and 120 Hz sub-frame rate and the company's StreamTV Internet platform. Unlike smaller televisions that use a matte screen, Mitsubishi has gone glossy in the 92-inch set, which DeMartin said boosts contrast at an added cost

Mitsubishi won't say exactly what the 92-inch TV's price will be, but consider for reference that the company's 82-inch 3D TV costs roughly US$4,000. Expect the price of the 92-inch model to be somewhat higher.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
