Lenovo intros 3D-equipped IdeaPad Y560dBy Matthew DeCarlo
On the brink of 3D mania, Lenovo is hoping to ride the wave of consumers looking to invest in extra-dimensional visuals with the launch of its first 3D laptop. The 15.6-inch IdeaPad Y560d has a 1366x768 display capable of churning out 3D imagery (requires glasses, which are included) and hardware options include up to an Intel Core i7-940QM processor, a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730, up to 8GB DDR3 RAM, and 250GB to 750GB of storage.
A range of other Core i3 and i5 CPUs are also listed, you can toss in a 32GB or 64GB SSD boot drive alongside the standard HDD, and the Y560d can be configured with a Blu-ray drive. Other specs include a 6-in-1 card reader, a 34mm ExpressCard slot, three Mini PCIe slots, three USB 2.0 ports (one eSATA combo), VGA and HDMI-out, gigabit Ethernet, wireless n, a 1.3MP webcam, a six-cell battery, and your choice of Windows 7 Basic, Premium or Professional.
The IdeaPad Y560d will be available through Lenovo's website by the end of the month with a base price of $1,200.
