NEW YORK (April 11, 2019) Acer today announced its latest addition to its iconic TravelMate P6 series, a thin, light, and durable commercial Windows 10 Pro notebook series built for professionals that travel frequently or work in the field. Robust and powerful with up to 20 hours1 of battery life, it’s built to withstand life on the road and support heavy workloads.

The Acer TravelMate P614-51 sports a premium quality magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis that is stronger and lighter than standard aluminum alloys at the same thickness. It also gives the laptop a sleek and modern aesthetic. Weighing just 2.4 pounds (1.1 kg) and measuring only 0.6 inches (16.6 mm), it’s easy to take on the road. With up to 20 hours1 of battery life, professionals can stay productive on transcontinental flights or work through two full days on the go without having to recharge. This high-performance notebook can also be charged up to 50 percent in less than 45 minutes.

Powerful, the new Windows 10 Pro notebooks are packed with up to 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors, up to 24GB DDR4 memory, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics3, and up to 1TB of responsive Gen 3 x4 PCIe SSD using NVMe technology for speeding through editing large spreadsheets, and creating presentations. The TravelMate P614-51 makes sharing and collaborating easy with a 180-degree hinge design, enabling it to lay flat for sharing the display with others.

“We’re excited to bring our professional customers a thinner and lighter version of our popular Acer TravelMate P6 series with an exceptionally long battery life,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “We’re confident they’ll appreciate the ability to work for two days without having to recharge, in addition to the notebook’s even more durable chassis and enhanced security.”

"Acer's new TravelMate is built tough and packed with powerful security features," said Mark Linton, General Manager, Consumer and Device Sales, Microsoft Corp. "The TravelMate also combines durability and portability with its lightweight design, long battery life, and impressive processing power that is sure to appeal to a wide range of customers."

The TravelMate P614-51’s 14-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS4 display delivers accurate color with 170-degree wide viewing angles. Full-sized and back-lit, the keyboard provides comfortable typing and enables travelers to work in low-light areas, such as in airplane cabins and on trains. A damage-resistant, ultra-responsive Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ touchpad enables precise gesture controls and swiping. Compared to traditional mylar, Corning® Gorilla® Glass is tougher, more resistant to scratches, and easier to clean.

Skype for Business-certified, the TravelMate P614-51 delivers crystal-clear videoconferencing via a four-mic array that picks up vocals from up to 6.5 feet away. Users can use the Cortana® personal digital assistant to send voice commands for staying organized, playing music and managing the home remotely.

Built Tough

The TravelMate P614-51 is designed to handle the bumps and bangs of airport security checks, accidental drops, and other mishaps. It complies with MIL-STD 810G2, 810F, a set of U.S. military grade standards that define the durability of a wide range of products. The testing follows stringent procedures such as a drop test involving 26 drops from a height of approximately 48 inches (122 cm) on various parts of the frame — landing on 2 inches of plywood placed on concrete. Other tests check the laptop’s resistance to rain, humidity, and extreme temperatures.

Solid Security

In addition to keeping data safe, companies want devices that are easy to deploy and manage remotely. Outfitted with Windows 10 Pro, the TravelMate P614-51 offers powerful security features to safeguard data. Customers can log in using Windows Hello with the fingerprint reader via the power button, or through the IR webcam that leverages biometric facial recognition. Both methods eliminate having to remember and use a password. When the webcam isn’t in use, the camera shutter can be closed for additional security. An integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip delivers hardware-based protection for passwords and encryption keys. The pre-loaded Acer ProShield includes a suite of security and management tools that help safeguard sensitive data, while Acer Office Management lets IT professionals deploy security policies and monitor assets from one interface. Available as an option on select models, Intel® vPro™ tightens security with another layer of protection, while saving time and money with efficient remote management capabilities.

Full Coverage Connectivity

Professionals can maintain a reliable, high-speed wireless connection with eSim-enabled5 4G LTE and 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO technology. Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 delivers blazing-fast data transfers up to 40Gbs to USB Type-C-connected devices. Customers can connect a cable from the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type while also supplying power and support for up to 8K displays. Other ports include MicroSD card and smart card readers6, and NFC4 (Near Field Communication) for sharing content or making mobile payments.

An optional Acer USB Type-C Dock II expands workspace via a USB Type-C port and meets productivity needs for 4K UHD video, data, and wired network while delivering stable power to the notebook. This dock also provides USB 3.1 Type A and Type C, DisplayPort, HDMI, audio in/out options and support for up to three 4K displays.

Pricing and Availability

The Acer TravelMate P614-51 will be available in North America in July, starting at USD 1,149.99, in EMEA in June, starting at EUR 1,249.00; and in China in May, starting at RMB 9,999.
