Everyone's playing the 3D card these days. And when we say everyone, we
really mean everyone. It's kind of crazy to think about how quickly 3D
has re-risen to prominence, and now even PC makers are joining in. At
first, there was 3D gaming on the desktop. 3D
LCDs weren't too hard to
find, and NVIDIA
's 3D Vision kit helped gamers get the extra accessories
they needed to indulge. But now, even the notebook makers are joining
is a company we never really expected to hop on the 3D bandwagon,
but sure enough, they have become one of the first to ship a 3D laptop.
The newest member of the IdeaPad family, the Y560D, just went on sale
at the company's website. It's their very first 3D capable notebook, and
they didn't skimp on the hardware. There's a 1.6GHz Core i7-720QM
processor at the helm, which will provide plenty of power for both
everyday computing tasks as well as the occasional game. And then
there's Windows 7 Home Premium, along with 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 1GB ATI
Mobility Radeon HD 5730 GPU, 500GB hard drive, a 6-cell battery and a
dual-layer DVD burner. There's also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, JBL speakers
and plenty of class.
The machine starts at $1499, though there's obviously the the ability to
customize it if you have the cash.
