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.
