Lenovo, one of the leading PC makers jumped into the 3D laptop train with the official release of the IdeaPad Y560d earlier today. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d is Lenovo’s first 3D laptop which is aimed at gamers and people who want to watch movies in HD.
A maxed out Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d runs on 1.86GHz quad Core i7, 8GB of RAM and an ATI Radeon HD5730 graphics card. It sports a 15.6-inch display, a built-in stereo system, an optional Blu-ray drive and 750GB of hard disk space (5400 rpm). Customers have the option of faster drives with 7200 rpm or SSDs.
This laptop uses the TriDef 3D technology that can make normal 2D content like movies and turn them (make them appear) in 3D. The IdeaPad Y560d also comes with Lenovo’s new RapidDrive technology that combines SSD and HDD storage solutions enabling faster boot times. The only downside to the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d is that it only has a maximum of 5 hours of battery life with integrated graphics.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d retail price starts at $1,200 for minimum configuration which comes with a dual-core 2.13GHz Core i3 processor, an Intel integrated graphics card, a 250GB hard drive without RapidDrive, 802.11n WiFi and a webcam. The IdeaPad Y560d starts shipping on June 22nd.
