    I have recently brought the macbook pro 13inch i5, first time using a mac from a pc, and already its better then any pc I have ever used. Anyway, I was wondering if NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision would work with the MBP?

    Thanks

    I don't believe that it will, as you need a special monitor/screen to use with 3Dvision. There are a few laptops out there with compatible screens, but I don't believe any macs are on that list.

    Alienware is unfortunately one of the few that offer it.

    EDIT: and MBP's dont use NVIDIA anymore

    EDIT2: Viper beat me to it haha

    Your computer also doesn't have a nvidia GPU.

    You need a 120Hz refresh rate screen to display 3D as far as I know, it's so you can have the two separate 60Hz images displayed, then you need the glasses as well of course.
    Just buy a 3DS mate, awesome lil machines and glasses free 3D!! I don't think Apple will go 3D anytime soon as it would mean new tech and screens and then the glasses.

    I'm curious if it is possible to go

    Mini-DP> HDMI > 3D TV to get 3D 'cause I sure as hell can't do it with 3D youtube videos :(
