Unfortunately the Toshiba 3DV series will not work because it has NVIDIA 
GeForce  graphics.  With all of its dialogs, chimera needs the ability 
to do OpenGL stereo graphics within a window, and currently, only the 
NVIDIA Quadro graphics driver supports that.

The page may be out of date, but see 
<http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro_pro_graphics_boards.html> for a 
list of possible Quadro graphics boards. The laptop versions have a 
capital M suffix.  My quick search did not find a laptop with both 
Quadro graphics and a 3D stereo screen, so you would need to connect the 
laptop to an external monitor to see sequential stereo.
