Durable, secure and powerful with a long battery life, these notebooks are built to survive life on the go

Last week, Acer announced the latest addition to their TravelMate P6 series, a line of Windows 10 Pro notebooks specifically created for professionals who often work on the road.

The notebooks now include a convertible option with a Corning Gorilla Glass touch display that can be rotated 360 degrees for use in presentation, tablet, notebook and tent modes.

“The new Acer TravelMate Spin P6 is ideal for professionals who spend significant time in

Meetings. It has been built with modes that enhance notetaking and drawing, showcasing presentations, signing contracts and sharing videos,” said James Lin, General Manager,Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “They’ll also appreciate being able to use it for multiple work days without having to recharge, and a durable, thin and light chassis that’s ideal for business travel.”

First class work experience

The notebook’s 14-inch display provides extra screen real estate, allowing more to be viewed with less scrolling.

An IPS panel with 100% sRGB color gamut coverage delivers accurate colour at up to 170 degree viewing angles. Full-sized and back-lit, the keyboard makes typing comfortable and enables travelers to work in dim areas like airplane cabins. An ultra-responsive, scratch-resistant touchpad supports precise gesture control.

All new models have dual speakers for crystal-clear videoconferencing, while a four-mic array picks up vocals from up to 6.5 feet away.

Thin, light & durable

Measuring only 16.8 mm, the TravelMate Spin P6 and TravelMate P6 are thin, portable and very light—starting from 1.0 kg and 1.1 kg, respectively. The chassis is comprised of a magnesium-aluminum alloy, which is stronger and lighter than standard aluminum alloys of the same thickness.

With a long battery life of up to 20 hours on the TravelMate P6, professionals can work throughout the day without having to plug in or recharge—and when needed, fast charging can boost the battery up to 80% within an hour.

Compliant with MIL-STD 810H [ 6 ] US military grade standards, the TravelMate P6 series can survive the bumps of airport security, accidental drops and other mishaps. The rigorous

durability testing follows stringent procedures which gauge the notebook’s resistance to pressure, rain, humidity and extreme temperatures.

Excellent security

The TravelMate P6 leverages the powerful security features of Windows 10 Pro, including a fingerprint reader and IR webcam for quick and safe logins via Windows Hello. Built-in Acer User technology detects if someone is in front of the computer to either wake up or lock up the notebook, and Windows Hello can recognize whether that person is the owner. For privacy,the system’s webcam can be physically shuttered when not in use.
