At its global press conference in New York, Acer introduces the ultra-light and durable TravelMate P6 series with Windows 10 Pro for the business segment. It is specifically designed for professionals who travel frequently or work in the field and need a rugged, powerful device with up to 20 hours of battery life that can handle heavy workloads.
Elegant Design and Durable Construction
The TravelMate P614-51 is housed in a premium-quality magnesium-aluminum alloy that is two to four times stronger than standard aluminum alloys for the same thickness, yet weighs up to 20 to 35 percent less. The Notebook is only 1.1 kg light and 16.6 mm slim and can be easily stored in a briefcase, handbag or backpack. The TravelMate P614-51 series is an elegant, modern aesthetic yet rugged travel machine. The shock-resistant chassis complies with U.S. military standard MIL-STD 810G, allowing the models to easily withstand a fall from up to 122 cm in height and up to 60 kg in pressure.
High Performance Components and All Day Battery Life
With up to 20 hours of battery life, business users can stay productive even on long international flights or work two full days on the go without recharging. At the same time, the high-performance notebook can be charged up to 50 percent in less than 45 minutes.
The new TravelMate P614-51 Series laptops are equipped to handle large spreadsheets, presentations and videos with Intel® Core™ 8th-generation i7 processors, up to 24GB of DDR4 memory, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics cards and responsive PCIe-SSD RAM up to 1TB. The 180-degree hinge allows easy collaboration so the screen can be shared when working in a group.
The TravelMate P614-51’s 14-inch (35.6 cm) Full HD-IPS (1,920 x 1,080) screen delivers precise colour even at 170-degree viewing angles. The full-featured, backlit keyboard makes typing comfortable and helps business travellers stay productive in low-light environments such as planes and trains. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ protects the durable and responsive touchpad from scratches and allows flawless scrolling and gesture control. Compared to conventional Mylar, Corning® Gorilla® Glass is more robust, scratch-resistant and easier to clean.
The TravelMate P614-51 Series laptops are Skype for Business certified and feature state-of-the-art audio and video equipment for crystal-clear video conferencing so voices can be heard up to two metres away. The personal digital assistant Cortana® enables remote control by voice command and performs tasks such as organizing appointments or playing music.
Excellent Security and Connectivity
In addition to data security, companies attach great importance to user-friendly remote control and simple administration. Thanks to Windows 10 Pro, the TravelMate P614-51 offers powerful security features. Users can log in via Windows Hello with the fingerprint reader integrated in the power button or via the IR webcam using biometric face recognition. TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) provides hardware-based protection for passwords and encryption keys. Acer ProShield is pre-installed with a range of security and management tools to protect confidential data. In addition, Acer Office Management enables IT to deploy security policies and monitor assets through a single interface. The optional Intel® >vPro™, available for selected models, increases security with an additional layer of protection while saving time and money with efficient remote management capabilities.
A reliable, fast and wireless connection is ensured by eSim-enabled 4G LTE and 2×2 MU MIMO technology. Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 delivers lightning-fast data transfers of up to 40 Gb/s to USB Type C connected devices. Compared to other port types, Thunderbolt™ can transmit 3 times as much data, provide twice as much video bandwidth and operate up to 8K displays.
Other connection options include MicroSD card and smart card readers and the use of NFC (Near Field Communication) for content sharing or mobile payments.
An optional Acer USB Type C Dock II extends the workspace via a USB Type C port and meets the requirements for 4K UHD video, data and wired networks with a stable power supply to the notebook. This dock also offers USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C, DisplayPort, HDMI, audio input and output options, and support for up to three 4K displays.
Prices and Availability
The new business notebooks of the TravelMate P6 series are expected to be available from June at recommended retail prices starting at 1,199 Euro.
