Unleashing a ‘Mobile’ Take on Innovation

Acer has officially launched a brand-new range of AI-enhanced TravelMate business laptops that are all powered by new-age processors and built-in NPUs to help users access next-level performance, productivity, and mobility. Decked up with the knowhow to provide AI-powered capabilities and user experiences, each of the new laptop comes bearing Acer TravelMateSense technology for quick access to device management settings and customization. Furthermore, they will have a new Acer Experience Zone for the collection of devices’ AI features, and a Copilot which will be accessible through one dedicated hotkey. Apart from that, all models will also offer advanced security and administration features to streamline device deployment and management for business, thus ensuring data is safeguarded through discrete Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, biometric security, and a camera privacy shutter. Talk about the new laptops on a slightly deeper level, we begin from the Acer TravelMate P6 14, which runs on the latest Intel Core Ultra 7 processors with Intel vPro Enterprise, alongside built-in Intel Graphics and Intel AI Boost, to unlock new AI experiences, performance, and power efficiency in the premium device. It has up to 32 GB of LPDR5X memory, and up to 1 TB M.2 PCIe SSD to ensure long-lasting battery life and fast response even when pitted against large workloads. Joining the same is a 14-inch WQXGA+ OLED (2880 x 1800) panel with a touch option. Users can also come expecting cinematic colors, motion clarity, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut support, and a VESA HDR TrueBlack 500 certification.
To complement the same, the TravelMate P6 14 hands you access to Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth® 5.3, and a large availability of essential ports that support Thunderbolt 4™ for seamless connectivity and convenience during business travels.
Beyond that, Acer took this opportunity to launch a new TravelMate P4 Series of thin-and-light business laptops. These laptops include a 14-inch convertible design, as 14- and 16-inch clamshell models, and new performance, security, and device management features to support professionals and IT technicians. For instance, the 2-in-1 Acer TravelMate P4 Spin 14 makes it possible for users to switch between various tasks and modes, as well as take advantage of its portability, weighing just 1.49 kg and 21.9 mm thin. Like the previous model, the Acer TravelMate P4 Spin 14 runs on Intel Core Ultra 7 processor 165U with built-in Intel Graphics and Intel vPro Enterprise eligibility.
Moving on, then we have Acer TravelMate P4 16. This one, supported by Intel Unison, features fast dual-channel DDR5 memory of up to 64 GB. It also has PCIe SSD storage maxed out at 1 TB. Another device coming into play would be Acer TravelMate P4 14, which boasts the latest AMD Ryzen PRO 8040 Series processors advanced with AMD Ryzen AI. Markedly, up to eight high-performing processing cores are based on the “Zen 4” architecture. Such a cutting-edge setup, on its part, allows the device to deliver ultimate performance across collaboration, productivity, and content creation applications.
Although slightly different in their nature, all new TravelMate business laptop will conceive comprehensive set of AI features for their users. An example of the same could be how creative professionals can leverage Acer LiveArt, which helps to instantly remove the background of an image with people, animals and objects. It also lets generate depth maps on 2D images. Making the entire value proposition even better would be the presence of Acer PurifiedView 2.0 across these laptops. You see, Acer PurifiedView 2.0 can use NPU to offload AI-accelerated applications and create smoother experiences when videoconferencing and live streaming experiences, doing so through specific capabilities like Background Blur, Automatic Framing, and Eye Contact. On top of that, it can also use AI to actively suppress background noise for clearer audio.
