Acer Introduces TravelMate B115 Notebook PC

The new notebook, priced at $349.99, features an 11.6-inch HD touch display and offers up to 10 hours of battery life.

Acer America has introduced its latest notebook PC for customers in the U.S. and Canada, the TravelMate B115. Boasting a thin design, 10-point multi-touch support, and a battery life up to 10 hours, this model is designed for commercial customers, particularly those in education.

“Thanks to its compact size combined with a full-size keyboard, the 11.6-inch notebook is popular with students and teachers alike,” says Sumit Agnihotry, Acer vice president – product marketing. “The TravelMate B115 provides long battery life, ample power, and multi-touch to give students and educators everything they need to be productive in and out of the classroom.† Plus, IT managers will appreciate the powerful security and manageability suite of tools for safeguarding data and managing assets remotely.” ††

Additional features of the TravelMate B115 notebook PC include:

  • Intel Celeron N2940 processor
  • 500GB storage
  • 4GB of RAM expandable to 8GB
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1
  • 11.6-inch Acer ComfyView LCD LED backlit display with a HD (1366×768) resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio
  • Attaches to external displays through HDMI and connects to networks via Intel Centrino Advanced –N 7260†
  • Bluetooth 4.0, a USB 3.0 port, and two USB 2.0 ports
  • High-def webcam (1280 x 780) with 720p audio/video recording and a built-in microphone

The Acer TravelMate B115 also comes with security and management software enabling educators and IT managers to safeguard† data and oversee IT assets remotely. Acer ProShield Manager is a suite of security and management tools within a single unified interface. Acer ProShield prevents unauthorized access while protecting assets and data integrity. Featuring pre-boot authentication, it protects the notebook from the BIOS level to the application level. Users can create a Personal Secure Drive (PSD) to store and encrypt all critical files, ensuring that if the notebook is lost or stolen, the data can’t be accessed. In addition, a File Shredder utility lets users permanently remove unwanted files or folders.

Acer Backup offers an added layer of security by backing up valuable data, media, and other digital assets, while Acer eRecovery Manager enables on-demand recovery. The TravelMate B115 also comes with Acer Office Manager, a manageability solution, which allows IT managers to deploy security policies, monitor IT assets, and schedule maintenance tasks in one application. †

The Acer TravelMate B115 will be available later this month in the United States and Canada from authorized Acer resellers with estimated prices starting at $379 USD.
