Lenovo announced the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d, the company’s first multimedia laptop with a 3D display. The Y560d features the TriDef® 3D technology solution, which includes a 3D screen, software and glasses , so you can experience the unique sensation of visual immersion within your favorite movies, pictures and games.
“Fun is a notebook that brings multimedia to life—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 15.6-inch Y560d 3D-enabled multimedia laptop, with its High-Def 16:9 widescreen and polarizer glasses, provides the optimal 3-dimensional experience when combined with compatible 3D movies and games.
With TriDef® 3-D technology, you can also experience 3D on your standard 2D videos and photos. The TriDef Media Player transforms a standard movie into a 3D experience. Photos take on a whole new life, thanks to the TriDef Photo Transformer that turns standard photos into eye-popping 3D.
The Y560d laptop includes Lenovo’s new innovative Enhanced Experience RapidDrive technology, which combines SSD and HDD storage solutions to deliver even faster Windows 7 boot-up times and significantly improve application performance. Lenovo Enhanced Experience for Windows 7 is a unique Lenovo certification that delivers an optimized boot-up and shutdown process, rich multimedia capabilities and easy system maintenance tools. With RapidDrive technology, you can experience Windows 7 boot up 66% faster, start favorite applications two-times faster, and copy files within the computer in less than half the time. The Y560d can be configured with up to 8GB DDR3 memory and up to 750BG HDD storage so you don’t have to worry about running out of hard drive capacity.
The Y560d will be available with JBL-designed speakers and Dolby® Home Theater™ surround sound – perfect for enjoying music and movies.
Powered with up to an Intel Core™ i7 processor featuring Intel Turbo Boost Technology for delivering extra GHz when you need it, and the latest high-performance ATI Radeon™ HD5730 1GB graphics card, the Y560d is more than capable of running the latest games. With Switchable Graphics, you can toggle between performance and energy-saving modes for extended battery life.
