Closer look at the Neo Elan L4300 3D Laptop
We’ve had this gaming laptop from Neo since December but have very little time to play around with it. The Neo Elan L4300-3D was launched back in August 2010 and remains the flagship notebook of Neo.
With a large 15.6″ display and a bulky form factor, this laptop isn’t meant to be carried around a lot. While the unit is already heavy, it also comes with a large power adapter that adds close to another kilo to the system.
Included in the box is one set of nVidia 3D Vision Kit (3D glasses & IR emitter) so you can play games in 3D while wearing the active glasses.
I have not tried this with Starcraft 2 but I read on the Blizzard website that it now supports 3D so I’ll be trying it later tonight once all the drivers and patches have been downloaded.

The specs of the Elan L4300 is pretty impressive too with a combo of an Intel Core i7 and NVidia GTX 285M. I also noticed that there’s an embedded fingerprint scanner in the middle of the trackpad (something I did not see during the launch of the product last year).
Here’s the screenshot of the Windows Experience Index for any of you who are interested what it looks like.
The processor scored a nice 7.1 on WEI while the graphics got a solid 6.8.
The Neo Elan L4300-3D started out at Php99,990 at launch date so I’m not sure if it has gone down a bit since then. It’s not cheap but it can surely carry its weight.
