About the Lenovo Z560

Lenovo z560The Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 laptop (MSRP $849) uses Dolby Advanced Audio technology to provide great sound for your dorm room or home office. And Dolby is giving away this great laptop to one of our email subscribers!

PCs have never been known for delivering a great audio experience. Yet, Dolby Advanced Audio changes all that, restoring the realism of the original soundtrack, whether for movies, music or games. So you experience every detail exactly as it was intended to sound.

How does Dolby do it?

  • Audio Optimization dramatically improves laptop sound quality by compensating for response irregularities in the speakers built into your laptop
  • Dolby Headphone enables a great surround sound experience and works with any set of headphones, putting the user in the middle of the action.
  • Natural Bass and High Frequency Enhancer delivers sound that's more realistic and more dramatic than ever before.

According to research released today by Dolby, approximately 60 percent of surveyed college students are now using their PCs more than televisions for entertainment. In fact, the majority of students believe PCs deliver the best overall entertainment experience and, as a result, expect higher-quality audio. In addition, 64 percent watch entertainment on their computers with others, so great audio is critical when considering a back-to-school laptop!

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 includes an Intel Core i3 Processor, Intel HD Graphics, 15.6" HD Display, 3 GB Memory and a 500GB Hard Drive.
 

Official Rules

We will randomly select one (1) winner from the entries. No purchase is necessary to win. Maximum of one entry per person. The giveaway will end at 11:59pm on August 31st, 2010.  Void where prohibited. U.S. residents only. Click here for the full rules.

My computer audio stopped working

From Theresa Dell on August 10, 2010 :: 1:19 pm

My computer audio stopped working and I have these cheap plug in speakers. Everything sounds like it’s coming through a soda can. It’s awful. I love listening to music while I am online so the Dolby sound would really make my “Rock ‘n Roll” online life much more fun!

From Tiffany Sparks on August 10, 2010 :: 1:30 pm

Better audio on my PC would improve my experience online drastically. Everytime I want to listen to music or watch a video I literally have to turn my volume full blast or I have to use headphones. Better audio makes for a better experience.

From Michelle Hudak on August 11, 2010 :: 4:48 am

I’m a subscriber.

My computer is in the room right next to the tv and I frequently watch movies on my computer while the rest of the family hogs the television. The sound is so poor on my computer that I have trouble hearing anything, even with my headphones on. My husband laughs because I always set up a dvd with the closed caption option on so I can at least READ what’s being said since I have trouble hearing it.  With this, I could banish myself to my bedroom and watch my movies and actually hear them!
