Consumers haven’t been racing to embrace 3D in their homes, but that hasn’t stopped HP from rolling out some new products that add the third dimension to your PC experience.

The company that made headlines when it recently considered dropping its personal computer business continues to release new desktops, with the TouchSmart 620 3-D edition being its latest model. In addition to its 3D capabilities via the 23-inch display (using the inevitable 3D glasses), the touchscreen-enabled system can recline up to 60 degrees and swivel 180 degrees so you can make use of the HP TouchSmart software. Unfortunately, HP hasn’t disclosed additional specs for TouchSmart 620, other than that it will make use of “premium graphics and processors” and start at $1,599.99 when it’s released on November 15.

If you don’t need a new desktop but still crave 3D, there’s the 2311gt monitor. The 23-inch LED-backlit display includes a pair of passive 3D glasses, and according to Engadget, sports 1080p resolution. In addition, it bundles Cyberlink PowerDVD and DDD TriDef software to convert software and games from 2D to 3D. The 2311gt is available now for $299.99.

Finally, HP has updated its Wireless TV Connect device to wirelessly transmit 3D content from your PC to your HDTV. You plug the box into your computer’s HDMI output jack and it uses WHDI technology to stream signals to your set. The new Wireless TV Connect is expected in December for $179.99.
