Lenovo today announced its first ever-3D laptop – the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d features a 15.6-inch 3D screen to provide a 3D experience when combined with compatible 3D movies and games. The laptop can be equipped with up to a Core i7 processor, and the ATI HD5730 graphics card with up to 1 GB of memory. Up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM and 750GB of storage space is available on the laptop.
The Y560d also features the RapidDrive technology to combine the performance of an SSD, and the storage space of a traditional HDD to deliver better performance.
Fun is a notebook that brings multimedia to lifeâ€”and the IdeaPad Y560d does this in a dramatic fashion with a truly unique 3D viewing experience,said Dion Weisler, vice president, business operations, Lenovo. While 3D technology has been around for ages, it has not been readily accessible to consumers within the home. Lenovo is helping bridge this gap by delivering consumers a 3D experience on a familiar PC platform that can be viewed and enjoyed when and where they want.
The laptop automatically switches to the integrated graphics core for improving the battery life. The laptop is also equipped with an HDMI port. A Blu-Ray player is also optional. The laptop also features SlideNav and OneKey Theather II. The former is an intelligent touch-sensitive slide bar application for easy desktop navigation, while the latter optimizes the laptop for video playback. The Y560d will feature speakers from JBL with Dolby Home Theater surround sound.
The 3D screen, TriDef technology, and the RapidDrive features are all optional. The laptop will hit the retail stores by the end of June, with the base model costing $1,199.99.
