Lenovo has become the latest tech firm to unveil a new 3D device in a month that has seen the likes of Sony and Microsoft outlining their plans for the technology.

The IdeaPad Y560d laptop uses ‘TriDef’ 3D, including a 3D screen, software and glasses. The only catch is that these elements are all ‘optional’, and will probably push the cost considerably higher than the $1,199.99 price tag on the Lenovo website.

The notebook features a 15.6-inch HD widescreen, Dolby surround sound, an Intel Core i7 processor, an ATI Radeon HD5730 1GB graphics card and an optional Blu-ray drive.

The TriDef technology also allows users to experience 3D on standard 2D videos and photos.

Dion Weisler, Lenovo’s vice president of business operations, said: “While 3D technology has been around for ages, it has not been readily accessible to consumers within the home. Lenovo is helping bridge this gap by delivering consumers a 3D experience on a familiar PC platform that can be viewed and enjoyed when and where they want.”
