Lenovo Adds 3D Notebooks

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK,
N.C. — Lenovo introduced its first 3D
laptop, the IdeaPad Y560d.

It has a 15.6-inch 3D enabled display,
and it comes with Lenovo’s TriDef 3D
Technology software, which can convert
2D images and video to 3D. The
software consists of the TriDef Media
Player that does the video conversion
and TriDef Photo Transformer, which
turns standard images into 3D.

Lenovo said the conversion process
works in real time so the content does not
have to be converted ahead of time. Native
3D contents works without the software.
The system uses polarized goggles
for viewing.

The IdeaPad Y560d will be available
with processor solutions up to an Intel
Core i7 840QM TurboBoost equipped
processor, up to 8GB DDR3 memory,
a 750GB hard drive and either a DVD
or Blu-ray Drive.

The IdeaPad Y560d will ship at the end
of June with a $1,199 suggested retail.
