Lenovo announces Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d laptop with 3D display

Lenovo today 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 users can experience the
unique sensation of visual immersion within their 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.”
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, users can also
experience 3D on their 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
The Y560d laptop includes Lenovo’s new
innovative Enhanced Experience RapidDrive technology, which seamlessly
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, users 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 users don’t have to worry about running out of hard drive
capacity when saving their favorite movies, music and games.

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, users can toggle between performance and
energy-saving modes for extended battery life. The laptop also includes
an optional Blu-ray Disc drive, HD graphics support and an HDMI output
for connecting to other HD devices such as a TV or gaming console.

Additional features on the Y560d include
SlideNav – an intelligent touch-sensitive slide bar application for easy
desktop navigation; OneKey Theater II for optimized video playback; and
an Ambient Light Sensor that automatically adjusts the PC screen
brightness based on the user’s distance from the display. For staying
connected while on the move, the Y560d also comes with optional
high-speed integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
