Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d 3D notebook on sale now

Lenovo’s 3D-capable notebook, the IdeaPad Y560d, has gone up for sale through the company’s webstore.  Priced at $1,399 – $200 more than initially expected, and a month late in fact – the Y560d has a 15.6-inch 1,366 x 768 LCD display, Intel Core i7-720QM 1.6GHz processor and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 1GB graphics, and uses the TriDef 3D system.

The preloaded software means that you can convert 2D photos and videos into 3D versions, and of course there’s 3D gaming too.  Other specs include 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB 5,400rpm hard-drive, DVD burner and WiFi b/g/n, along with Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium.

Graphics are switchable between the discrete ATI GPU and the integrated Intel HD chipset, and Lenovo reckon you’ll see roughly 4hrs battery life on the former and up to 5hrs on the latter.  Ports include a USB/eSATA combo, three regular USB ports, ExpressCard and both VGA and HDMI outputs.  The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d ships within five days.
