Lenovo, throwing its hat into the 3D laptop ring, has just released its new IdeaPad Y560d. However, Lenovo differentiated its new 3D laptop from those being released by Toshiba, Asus, and others. What really sets this 3D laptop apart from the others?
Utilizing TriDef’s 3D technology, the IdeaPad Y560d is able to convert 2D content into 3D. How does it pull that off? The new IdeaPad has a specially coated screen, TriDef software, and unique polarizing glasses. Another plus is that you can create 3D photos using TriDef’s Photo Transformer. This same technology is built into the Acer Aspire 5738DG. The only downfall is that this laptop does not support 3D Blu-ray content, making you choose near-limitless standard definition 3D-content with the IdeaPad, or limited 3D Blu-ray content with other 3D-enabled laptops, such as the Toshiba Satellite 665 3D Edition.
Looking past the 3D capabilities or lack-there-of, let’s dive into the specs of Lenovo’s new IdeaPad Y560d:
- 15.6-inch HD widescreen
- Up to an Intel Core i7 processor featuring Turbo Boost Technology
- Up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM
- Up to 750GB HDD

- Optional Blu-ray Disc drive

- 802.11n WiFi
- Ambient Light Sensor – Automatically dims the display based on distance from the display
