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.

I’ve got three daughters ages 1, 2, and 3.  I can’t hear anything with all the crying, talking, babbling, laughter, etc. in my house.  Improved audio on my computer would definitely help!
