Acer has announced new TravelMate business laptops, all powered by 13th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, and feature 16:10 OLED displays, 65Wh fast charging long battery life, and secured log-in with a fingerprint reader or IR camera, all working to enable users to meet performance and mobility requirements.

All the latest TravelMate business laptops run on Windows 11 and feature Acer Dust Defender technology to minimise the accumulation of dust and maintain consistent high-power performance. The software runs the fan briefly in reverse every three hours to flush out dust, enabling the components to stay cool, perform better, and last longer.

Acer says that their Light Sensing technology can detect ambient colour and light to adjust the brightness and colour temperature of the display, so the screen always looks natural and provides better viewing experiences overall.

Work users can have peace of mind using Acer’s User Sensing technology on the TravelMate P6 14 and made an option on the TravelMate P4 Spin 14, TravelMate P4 14 and TravelMate P4 16 models, as it keeps data safe by locking the screen when users leave, and quickly waking up when they return.

But there are differences between them too.

Acer’s latest TravelMate P6 14 delivers a large screen experience with a 2.8K OLED (2,880 x 1,800) display panel, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and support for 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space. Powered by a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, 32 GB of LPDDR5 memory, and a 65Wh fast-charging battery.

It also comes with an FHD IR webcam that uses AI-powered noise-reduction technology through Acer PurifiedVoice along with upward-facing speakers with DTS Audio so a user can be seen and heard clearly, while a PrivacyPanel feature helps obscure viewing angles beyond 90° to defend against prying eyes. The TravelMate P6 14 laptop also features both 2x2 Wi-Fi 6E and 5G connectivity. The 2x2 Wi-Fi 6E means that there are two transmitting and two receiving antennas so the speed is faster.

The TravelMate P4 14-inch and 16-inch versions, along with the TravelMate P4 Spin laptops come with 13th Gen Intel Core i7 vPro processors in addition to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPUs.

The TravelMate P4 14 highlights a lightweight magnesium-alloy chassis and larger screen real estate on a 16:10 thin bezel display with up to 2.2K resolution, showcasing upgraded visuals in a new premium design.

The Acer TravelMate P2 series laptop comes in both 14-inch and 16-inch models with 16:10 WUGXA (1,920 x 1,200) IPS displays with a viewing angle of up to 170 degrees. Acer says that the business-focused devices come powered by 13th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPUs. They feature a larger OceanGlass touchpad and a 180-degree hinge that lets the laptop lay flat when needed. Connecting to the Internet and peripherals isn’t an issue with Wi-Fi 6E and 4G LTE support, and the inclusion of a wide variety of ports such as a Thunderbolt 4 Type C port that supports 40Gbps data transfer and dual 4K displays.
