In a recent announcement, Acer unveiled three new laptops that focus on a thin and light design: the Swift X, the TravelMate P6 and the TravelMate Spin P6. Their ultraportable designs all include high-quality hardware that is perfect for hybrid professionals.
The Swift X
The stunning new Swift X joins Acer̵
“Acer’s new notebook models are designed to provide consumers with the widest choice of powerful ultraportable computing devices,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer Inc. enough to carry around all day long, but it should also be powerful enough to run multiple resource-intensive programs simultaneously. We always strive for that balance with every device we make. “
You can choose up to 2TB of SSD storage, and the 59W fast-charge battery lasts up to 17 hours on a single charge. The 14-inch FHD IPS display has an sRGB color gamut of 100% and a screen-to-body ratio of 85.7%. It has a good selection of ports, including fully functional USB-C for super-fast data transfer, charging and video streaming. It also includes a fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello, AI-enhanced noise cancellation for video calls, and an air intake keyboard design that dissipates up to 10% more heat to keep the device cool.
The Acer Swift X will be available in North America from June onwards from $ 899.99. It will be rolled out in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and China starting this summer.
The TravelMate P6 series
Acer had hybrid working professionals in mind when designing its new TravelMate P6 laptop series, ensuring that the two new laptops were incredibly portable while remaining usable. Both feature the latest 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, up to 32 GB DDR4x RAM and a 1 TB PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD with NVMe technology. They also have 14-inch FHD + IPS displays with 1000% sRGB color gamut and are just 0.6 inches in size starting at 2.2 pounds.
The Spin P6, Acer’s convertible version of the standard TravelMate P6, has a Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen display that can rotate 360 degrees. It’s perfect for presentations, taking notes, signing contracts and sharing videos, and can be used in tablet, notebook, tent, and presentation modes. It also has the Acer Active Stylus that works with Windows Ink.
The Spin P6 has an aspect ratio of 16:10 and narrow edges, so you can see as much content as possible on the screen at once. In addition, you can limit the viewing angle to just 90 degrees by enabling the Acer PrivacyPanel feature, which is perfect if you work on public transport or in a busy office.
Both models have two speakers that provide ultra-clear sound for video calls, and an array of four microphones that picks up your voice from up to 2 meters away. It also has a built-in smart amplifier that gives you loud, distortion-free sound with deep bass (which also acts as a guard to protect your speakers even when you turn up the volume). The two notebooks have a magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis and last up to 20 hours on a single charge – perfect for hybrid workers. They can also charge quickly and get their battery up to 80% in an hour.
The TravelMate P6 has a fingerprint reader and IR webcam for secure Windows Hello logins. Both support Wi-Fi 6 and optional eSim / USim compatible 5G connectivity. In addition, they have USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports for fast data transfer and powering (up to) 8K displays. They also have microSD slots and NFC.
The Acer TravelMate P6 and TravelMate Spin P6 will both be available in North America in December. The standard TravelMate P6 starts at $ 1,299.99 and the Spin P6 starts at $ 1,399.99. They will be rolled out in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and China from August.
