Lenovo has entered the 3D world with their new IdeaPad Y560d 3D notebook, which has now gone on sale through the company’s online store. The new notebook uses the TriDef 3D system and is priced starting at $1399, depending on the various options you hook it up with. The TriDef system consists of the display, the glasses, and the software. The latter is of particular interest as Lenovo says the “TriDef Media Player” and “TriDef Photo Transformer” software will be able to convert and display conventional 2D video or photos as full viewable 3D versions.

The Y560d comes with a 15.6” 16:9 display with a rather small 1366×768 resolution. It is powered by an Intel Core i7-720QM 1.6GHz processor along with an ATi Mobility Radeon HD5730 1GB GPU to pump out the pixels. The notebook packs 4GB of DDR3 RAM and has a 500GB 5,400 rpm HDD for storage, along with a DVD burner for optical media. In terms of connectivity options, it comes with WiFi b/g/n support and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.

You also get three USB 2.0 ports, a USB/eSATA combo port, ExpressCard and VGA and HDMI output ports. The laptop has graphics switching technology to switch between the integrated Intel HD chipset and ATi’s discrete GPU for efficient power management. Lenovo says you’ll see roughly 4hrs battery life on the discrete GPU and up to 5hrs on the integrated chipset. The Y560d comes preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d ships within five days.
